I receive the electronic version of Dr Dobbs which organizes the Jolt awards in several categories.

This year there are two books in the list that I think I should mention. Although I haven't read them, the reviews seem to be good:

For the beginner programmer:
Hello World! Computer Programming for Kids and Other Beginners
http://www.amazon.ca/Hello-World-Computer-Programming-Beginners/dp/1933988495/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1281668547&sr=8-1

And if you've ever wondered why are there so many languages. What were the creators thinking, you may want to read:

Masterminds of Programming: Conversations with the Creators of Major Programming Languages
http://www.amazon.ca/Masterminds-Programming-Conversations-Creators-Languages/dp/0596515170/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1281668603&sr=1-1
