Jonathon Livingston SeagullJonathon Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach. Where there is no Doctor 

A great reference for anyone traveling in the third world. This book describes many simple medical procedures that can be done without a high tech health facility available. A must for healthcare workers in developing areas.

Trinity by Leon UrisTrinity by Leon Uris.  A great historical novel giving a personal touch to the religious and political conflicts in northern Ireland. Milagro Beanfield War by John Treadwell Nichols.   This book has one of the funniest opennning chapters that I have ever read. Its a great tale situated in New Mexico.
Chaos : Making a New Science by James Gleick. A relatively easy book about a very fascinating mathematical science. Common Ground : A Turbulent Decade in the Lives of Three American Families by J. Anthony Lukas 

This work of non-fiction provides a fascinating account of how public school bussing evolved in Boston during the 1970's. The book reads like a novel since the author meticulously follows three real families from different background through the tumultuous events.

Moosewood Cookbook
The Moosewood Cookbook by Katzen, Mollie
Arcadia by Stoppard, Tom.  I recent saw this play put on by the Bard Hall Players of Columbia's Physicians and Surgeons and really liked it a lot.  Topics discussed by the characters in the play included chaos theory and determinism.
