I like a good read now and again, especially on a trip and it's usually following a recommendation that I decide to pick a book up and read it.
Here are 3 of my favourites :
A factual and inspirational book about a man who enjoys his 100 mile runs; from Western States 100 to the Badwater Ultramarathon his physical and mental strength know no bounds.
If you run, you'll understand it, if you want to run you'll be inspired to and if you just want to be amazed then this is the book for you.
An inspiring autobiographical book by Lance Armstrong accounting his battle with cancer and how he came out the other side; stronger, more determined and then going on to win the 1999 Tour de France. Having been given a 40% chance of living, Armstrong has come out fighting. Despite his bad press and question marks over how came to win the Tour de France after being so ill, I did find this a thoroughly enjoyable read. It highlighted to me that every second really does count.
