The ones I can personally recommend.
Once A Runnerby John L Parker
The Ghost Runner by Bill Jones
What I talk about when I talk about Running by Haruki Murakami
I've read a few and Born to Run by Chris McDougall is my favourite.
Edit: the equivalent to that Josie Drew book would be Juat a Little Run Around the World by Rosie Swale Pope, also good.
thanks for the recommendations - on the case as it beats the tv!!!!
I've recently read "Running with the Kenyan"s by Angharad Finn and “Keep on Running: The Highs and Lows of a Marathon Addict” by Phil Hewitt. Enjoyed both, but preferred the second as I could relate to alot of what he's been through....
+1 for the Born to Run by Chris McDougall, it got me back into reading
Thanks - I am tired of reading about Thomas and his friends, and Tracey Beaker!!!
Mud, Sweat and Tears by Moire O'Sullivan.
Survival of the Fitest by Mike Stroud (but no just about running)
I was going to suggest Thomas and his Friends!!!
My favourites are From last to first by Charlie Spedding, and Plimsolls on Eyeballs out the biography of Jim Peters.
Thank you !

...not the kind of how to run book more a personal account ...
"Running Desperado" perhaps (but it's only on Kindle at the moment although you can get a free app for most devices that will let you read Kindle books). It is mostly diary style & is a personal account from an average persons perspective rather than a super human.
Scott Jurek's book ("Eat and Run: My Unlikely Journey to Ultramarathon Greatness") is out today - very excited, feels like I've been waiting for it to be released in the UK for ages!
