I usually only skim and scan technical books, but my one that I made it all the way through word-for-word is How We Decide by Jonah Lehrer. Ok, it's not specifically on UX/IA topics, but it's definitely shaped how I think about design.
Like I said, I love anything that involves making large-ish amounts of data more friendly to work with. What excites me about our field though are the possibilities a few years down the road: designing for natural language and touchless gestural interface.
I'm a UX designer at Roundarch and I like working on data-heavy applications. I also play guitar in the band Safeword.
