Anything Sidney Sheldon writes.

On this site you'll probably get many people who have read  What Your Dr. may not tell you about Knee Pain and Surgery by R.P. Grelsamer, M.D.

i like reading sport biographies or sport related books.

my two favorite so far have to be:

Lance Armstrong's "It's Not Just About the Bike"

and

Travis Roy's "Eleven Seconds"

One as you most likely know fought cancer to return to cycling. The other became paralyzed after his first 11 second shift in his BU hockey game in a bad hit. Both are really inspiring and great books to read. (They make your knee injury feel not so bad anymore...)

Seabiscuit.. what an amazing story  ;D The movie is a tear jerker..you feel like you are right up there on that lil horse.  The horsewhisperer is also a really great book... but,  some adult scenes.. in the book. ;)   Deep Waters is also a really excellent read, but it's based on a true story and can be extremely disturbing.
