Hi,
I just wanted to broaden my horizons and see what books people are enjoying. Maybe we have similar tastes or maybe you'll introduce me to a great book I've never heard of before. I just want to know what your favorite book is and why it's your favorite.

Fishing book is Ian Chillcotts " Light my fire " at the mo, been a great read.
Other type of book has got to be Dan Browns books, either da vinchi code or the lost symbol, both absolutely brilliant books

I usually steer away from fishing books. I much prefer Dean Koontz, Richard Laymon or the like.

If you're into horror/fiction, you must read The Bad Place or Intensity (both by Koontz) I have read these many times over the years, they are that good :wink:

That's my favourite fishing book as well, its quality. 2nd Favourite is probably Terry Hearn's "In Pursuit of the Largest".

My favourite non angling book is probably Howard Marks' "Mr Nice".

One of the funniest books I've read is "The Raymond Delauney Emails" which is full of wind up emails to various people and companies.

Got to say i rate Dave Lane's "Flick Of The Tale" pretty highly, great read, as you'd expect of such a highly regarded angler. :D

Got to just love Mr Nice, Howard is a star! Can't wait for the film to come out, sure Rhys Ifans will do him proud 8)
