I am currently reading Running with Joy and love it. I have a Droid phone and can read books on it with a kindle app. I read books that way when standing in line someplace or sitting and waiting for someone or other times when it's hard to always have a book available, especially if you don't know you're going to end up waiting somewhere. So I'm working through it slowly but really love it. I'll have to check out the other books too.

Thanks for the recommendations!
Here is my favorite: "The Big book of Endurance Training and Racing" by Phil Maffetone, covers not just running but also diet and life style issues like stress management and puts health before racing times.
