Andy needs new books! Help him out!

I love to read, anyone who knows me knows that. I've been reading since I was a little kid, starting with The Hobbit when I was 7, Chronicles of Narnia right after that, and it's all been downhill since then. I've read primarily science-fiction and fantasy, but in the last year I've been starting to read more non-fiction, business development and motivational books. Books like Kitchen Confidential, Good to Great, Purple Cow, and Delivering Happiness.

I'm always on the lookout for new books to add to my ever growing list and I'd love to enlist you, my loyal readers, to help me out. I'm sure that you can introduce me to authors and books I've never heard of that I'd absolutely love. So, I'm going to write a list of my favorite authors/books and I'd love for you to make suggestions based on your own experiences. The below list is in no particular order. I'd also love to chat about any of the books or authors listed below.

This is by no means a complete list. I've got about 200-300 books at home, with about 20 of them never having been read yet. I've got an Evernote list that I pull from anytime I go to a book store, and that's what I'm hoping to add to with your help. Thanks and add your favorites in the comments below.
