Inspired by (50 Shades of Hillwalking by Ralph Storer), I wondered if anyone has read any good walking books that you'd recommend? Maybe post a bit about the latest one you've read or are currently reading?
I know a bit cliche'd but I'd recommend A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson.

My favourite walking book is 'Always a little further' by Alastair Borthwick - now sadly out of print but it is available on Kindle.

"This title portrays a group of rank-and-file climbers from Glasgow who sought merely to enjoy the freedom of the mountains and the fellowship of shared experience, it presents a very different view of mountaineering than is found in many more 'serious' books on the subject. The climbing merely provides the background to the story and it is the travelling, the characters and the colourful life of road, campsite and bothy that form the main focus of attention".
