You won't be able to put "Into Thin Air" down - most people I know read that book in 2-3 days, and then re-read it.
Krakauer also wrote "Into the Wild" which is pretty spellbinding as well.
Another fascinating mountain climbing book is "Touching the Void" - an amazing story.
And in other suggestions, "The Last Lecture" by Randy Pausch is a pretty inspiring read.
Touching the void is the one by the British climber IIRC? He wrote a follow up called the "this game of ghosts" which was excellent.
