I'd like to find more interesting books to read that are closely related to piano (without being lesson books, per se). Things like history, interesting stories about composers and piano developers/manufacturers, piano-related or themed novels and/or short stories. Basically any books that are both entertaining and informative that will help me acquire greater general piano literacy.

A few that I have already read are:
Piano Lessons by Noah Adams
Playing Scared by Sara Solovitch
The Piano Shop on the Left Bank by Thad Carhart (probably my favorite of these three).

Any suggestions?
I suggest you read the Piano book by Jean Echenoz. I read it very well.
Play it again, by Alan Rusbridger. I skipped some English politics though.

+1 on this one. I loved it
Some of the books below might look a bit dry, especially for younger generations, but they contain tons of interesting information:

- The Great Pianists - Harold Schonberg
- Famous Pianists & Their Technique - Reginald Gerig
- Piano Notes: The World of the Pianist - Charles Rosen
- Great Contemporary Pianists Speak for Themselves - Ed. Elyse Mach, but actually several pianists (i.e. Arau, Ashkenazy, Brendel, Gould, Horowitz, ...)
- Chopin: Pianist and Teacher: As Seen by His Pupils - Ed. Jean-Jacques Eigeldinger.
