I just did a search with 'books' as the search word and it pulled up at least half a dozen threads.
For what it's worth here's three from me.
Feet in the Clouds, Born to Run and Running on Empty. And if you're serious about your running every bookshelf should have a copy of The Lore of Running by Noakes on it.
Feet in the Clouds and Born to Run are both of enduring quality. The latter is stuffed with amazing information and stories.
There are some 'how I became an ironman' triathlon books which are good at encapsulating the challenge; my favourite is How Triathlon Ruined My Life.
A slightly different angle comes from What I Talk About, When I Talk About Running
Bought Brain Training for Runners by Matt Fitzgerald. Interesting, lots of info. It´s worth a try
I really liked Why We Run by Bernd Heinrich. It is partly autobiographical but it mainly draws on the author's experiences rather than exploring his life story and it draws parallels between humans and animals which are very interesting.
Would highly recommend it. Also liked What I Talk About When I talk About Running but I found that strongly autobiographical.
Lore of Running.... will turn you into a running geek.
