All three are SE friendly.  If the page is accessible to the spider, the SE will index it just fine with any of those three URLs.

What about if 'books' is the important keyword in the url. Does it matter if it appears sooner in th eurl like in the .htm veriosn?

Correct - if 'books' is one of your important keywords, you are better off with it in your page name (as in the .htm or .html version).
