When you're on the road, more often than not you'll find that words can be the last things on your mind. However, as much as we'd all love, rides cannot last forever. Eventually, you'll have to pull into a rest stop and relax your weary body. Before you lay your head down on the pillow, consider picking up a book--one about your passion, of course, and today I've brought you two recommendations from my personal collection.
As it's January, Goodreads' Reading Challenges have reset, so I'll be directing you to their Goodreads' pages respectively, so that you may add them to your own collection; fear not, but links and sources for where you may purchase the books themselves can be found on this site as well!
Guy Martin: My Autobiography by Guy Martin.
A fabulous read and an in-depth look into the life and mind of Guy Martin, this book was written by the biking superstar himself. This book was in the Sunday Times bestselling list for six weeks back in June of 2016 and is only the first of the books he's written. This book became the second best-selling autobiography of 2014, and to this day continues to capture readers with the stories contained within. With a rating of 4.01 on Goodreads, you know this will be a book you can't put down.
Pushing the Limits by Casey Stoner.
With a rating of 4.08, already this book is off to a good start. Join one of the World MotoGP champions as he tells you all about his life's adventure. If you need to know more, check out this review by someone who is clearly a bigger fan than I! Casey's struggles and triumphs are all outlined in this engaging nonfiction book, and even the casual fans will enjoy the tone and way he's written about his life in this book.
