Hi All,

I'm sure a lot of you enjoy tucking into a good book while relaxing at home or in the backcountry. I was wondering what your suggestions are for good books you've read as I'm in search of some new reading material about outdoor adventures.

So far the only two I've read within the genre (which were both great) are:
A Walk In The Woods by Bill Bryson
Touching The Void by by Joe Simpson

Side note, I just found out they made A Walk in the woods into a movie and it's coming out this September!

P.G. Downes "Sleeping Island is 1 I read lately. Quite well written---he was an English teacher after all. Alan Kesselheim's books are quite well written as well.

I have bought quite a few books here: http://www.abebooks.com/
