    Do a search of Cake Stop - lots of cycling-related literature has been discussed.

    I'd recommend The Rider by Tim Krabbe and The Beautiful Machine by Greame Fife.

    For non-cycling books - anything by Haruki Murakami will knock your socks off... :)

    Especially the Wind Up Bird Chronicle - it's a complete head f**k. But in a good way. :D

    Just finishing In search of Robert Millar by Richard Moore. Highly recommend this.

    another non-cycle book ...sorry....

    The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini is superb
    Whenever I see an adult on a bicycle, I believe in the future of the human race.

    I'm desperately trying to save "Thunder and Sunshine" by Alistair Humphreys for my hols in a week or two having just finished the first book "Moods Of Future Joys". Great read.
    Also "Discovery Road" is a book I never tire of "plugging" (4 reads and counting!)>

    Cycling wise - Its not about the bike by LA
    Yes its a book about lance written by lance which many will hate, but i found it inspirational and a surprisingly well written book.

    Non cycling related:
    The white spider - Heinrich Harrer (sp?)
    Book about the north face of the Eiger, you might need to be a climber to enjoy it, but its a bloody good read.

    Anything by Cristopher Brookmire - the sacred art of stealing is pure genius and not too heavy - ideal holiday reading.
