I bet Cajin will have some interesting to add.

I havn't had much time to read lately but when I do it's Tom Clancy (clear and present danger for me hooked. The Ding Chavez books are my favorite)

I also regularly read the Book of Mormon/Bible as part of my religious studies. You may enjoy the stories there too :)

Piers Anthony Zanth series! I haven't bought the last few books of the series. They are fun to read. If you like puns they are great.
Lorna Doone is another book I read often.
On I don't know which time (it must be a dozen or more) of reading the series on the Ring. Too bad they didn't include the return to the Shire and the wars there in the movies.
Of course the Bible.
I tried the Book of Mormon and I will say no more!

I want to get into A song of fire and ice, but not until Game of Thrones finishes. I don't want to ruin it for myself. But so far I can say that the most interesting read was Enders Game. My most memorable read was True Colors Of Caitlynne Jackson by Carol Lynch Williams, as that really hit home for me. And my most intriguing read was the entire animorphs and goosebumps series as a child.

I just re-read Neal Stephenson's "Cryptonomicon"; it's amazing how much he got right. I'd recommend everything he has published.

Dan Simmon's "Hyperion" books and "Ilium"/"Olympos" offer some opportunity for deep thought while being entertained.

I read Alex Lamb's Roboteer when it came out about a year ago, and I am looking forward to his continuation of the series.

Peter F. Hamilton's Night's Dawn trilogy and Commonwealth series are some good deep-thinkers as well. Maybe start with "Pandora's Star" if you are curious.

Paolo Bacigalupi's books are really interesting. "The Windup Girl" and "The Water Knife" are both fun reads.

I think I have read everything by Brandon Sanderson. He builds fantasy worlds with interesting concepts. The Mistborn books are a good place to start, but if you like big, complex tomes, the Stormlight Archive series (start with "The Way of Kings" ) is really engaging.

Of course, the Bible. I like to read different variants (NIV, New Jerusalem, RSV, etc.) to focus on the core themes.

I've also spent the last 8 months or so reading a lot of non-fiction on fermentation, the biology of yeast, etc. A lot of it is pretty dry, but Sandor Katz's "The Art of Fermentation" gives a pretty good overview of all of the different fermented foods and drinks across the globe.

Also, recent and not-so-recent non-fiction that I found really interesting:
"The Botany of Desire" by Michael Pollan,
"Extra Virginity" by Tom Mueller,
"Salted" by Mark Bitterman (may be a really niche audience),
"The Orchid Thief" by Susan Orlean, and, if you are looking for a downer,
"Cadillac Desert" by Marc Reisner.

I like all of The Ranger's Apprentice, books by John Flanagan.
