Here is the Tergar Learning Community's top ten although I wouldn't recommend Stephen Batchelor's book to a beginner.

I love the story of Milarepa, I have always found it inspirational. The three pillars of Zen by Roshi Kapleau is worth a read as it shows how ordinary people who have often made foolish mistakes in life can still breakthrough and get a glimpse of the absolute.

For Tibetan Buddhism, I recommend Reginald Ray's two books.
