1. Laurence M. Ball, Money, Banking, and Financial Markets. A truly modern money and banking text; could this be the best money and banking text ever? I don't yet see an Amazon link for it but presumably it will be out soon. (Addendum: Link is now here.)
2. William Flesch, Comeuppance: Costly Signaling, Altruistic Punishment, and other Biological Components of Fiction. An excellent book on why we find fiction and narrative so satisfying; the notion of vindication is central to the hypothesis. Recommended.
3. David Post, In Search of Jefferson's Moose: Notes on the State of Cyberspace. This book is written in the style of Jefferson in at least one way. I mean that as praise.
4. Joel Kraemer, Maimonides: The Life and Times of One of Civilization's Greatest Minds. Fills in many of the pieces about his life and work; it seems he lived part of his life as a practicing Muslim.
