This is fun – a list of books compiled at the New York Public Library’s blog of books that have appeared or been mentioned on the show Mad Men (links are NYPL record links):

Meditations in an Emergency – Frank O’Hara
The Best of Everything – Rona Jaffe
Confessions of an Advertising Man – David Ogilvy
Babylon Revisited and Other Stories – F. Scott Fitzgerald
The Chrysanthemum and the Sword – Ruth Benedict
Exodus – Leon Uris
Ship of Fools – Katherine Ann Porter
Lady Chatterley’s Lover – D.H. Lawrence
The Sound and the Fury – William Faulkner
Atlas Shrugged – Ayn Rand
The Agony and the Ecstasy – Irving Stone
The Group – Mary Mccarthy
The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire – Edward Gibbon

On that note, Season 4 – for those of us who are cable-less – is now available at Amazon (and hopefully soon at Netflix).
