I like reading anything by Bernard Cornwall. Just read his latest, 1356, which is the latest book on a series about an English archer, during the 100 years war. He also wrote the Sharpe books, a series about King Arthur, and some others
I've read a few of his books, Azincourt is bloody good, also the Warlord chronicles which were good too, Rebel wasn't half as good though. I do love the 'fake history' of his stories
I'm reading 'Slaying the Badger' at the moment, a very good account of the 1986 TdF with lots of very interesting background on Lemond and Hinault too, certainly recommended.
Some other books I've read recently which I would recommend...
The Junior Officers' Reading Club - Patrick Hennessey - Inside the head of a junior officer in Afghanistan
The Dirt - The rather alarming, entertaining and utterly bonkers story of Motley Crue, amazing read.
Slash - The autobiography - Slash of Guns 'n' Roses telling it like it was, awesome!
