This one is good (but it is expensive now; I'd check the library since you live in a big city), but outdated (it also covers the most technical of the peaks that can climbed with a trekking permit):

This is more a history book rather than a guidebook, but it have route drawings for all of the routes of the 8000 meter peaks:

This book covers all the 8000 meter peaks and some of the 6000 and 7000 meter peaks, but it isn't very detailed and is also pretty outdated:

The Lonley Planet Trekking in Nepal mentions very briefly the climbs that can be done with a trekking permit.
The Trailblazer books also have route descriptions of the peaks that can be done with a trekking permit:

Be aware that several of the "trekking peaks" are highly technical (such as Kusum Kanguru). The term "trekking peak" just means that you can climb them with a trekking peak permit; rather than means that they are non-tehncial.

Several of the trekking peaks are pretty easy.
