Yamuna's Table is a fascinating book, filled with flavorful vegetarian Indian dishes. If you enjoy Indian food, I highly recommend this cookbook, even if you're not a vegetarian. Many thanks to Lalitree for the recommendation.
Next on my list is Our Band Could Be Your Life: Scenes from the American Indie Underground 1981-1991, by Michael Azerrad. I picked this book up several years ago, read the chapters on Sonic Youth and the Replacements, then put it down, only to lose it in the clutter that is my "to read" pile. With chapters on Big Black, Mission of Burma, and Beat Happening (among others), I'm looking forward to this book of indie rock history.
