[*many of these are free online.]

Sextus Empiricus, Outlines of Pyrrhonism, Book III, Chapter III, Concerning God.

Atheism: A Very Short Introduction: Julian Baggini 

*Dialogues of Natural Religion by David Hume [To this day Hume's treatment remains unsurpassed and unanswered. Men have had to shape their theology in light of it. Only now is theism actually catching up! Natural theology has long been dead!]

The Atheist Primer by Malcom Murray. [THE BEST! Murray understands the sophisticated theistic arguments, but he speaks in a language which is assessable to the layman. It is hard to estimate the value of this book.] 

Atheism the Case Against God by George H. Smith [still relevant, truly a classic.]

*The Rejection of Pascal's Wager: Paul Tobin

The Portable Atheist: Essential Readings for the Nonbeliever, Christopher Hitchens

Paul Henry Thiry, pseudonym: Baron d'Holbach
-*Common Sense Without God (sometimes just called, Common Sense)
-*Letters to Eugena 

*The Antichrist 
*Beyond Good and Evil

Testament: Memoir of the Thoughts and Sentiments of Jean Meslier 

The Essence of Religion Ludwig Feuerbach 

DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE THE VALUE OF THIS LIST! The fact that it is concise only makes it more practical. One does not actually need to read a great deal in order to overcome theism.
