A book I read recently was The Old Patagonian Express by Paul Theroux which is a travel book. I can just imagine going through about 10 rolls of FP4 on a trip like this.
Both Barry Thorton books. Great anecdotes and stories around relevant photography experiences as examples for the aspects he discusses and teaches. Great inspiration and very entertaining. I've read them both a few times over the years.
the Road To Seeing by Dan Winters
Take it to the edge
Everyone should own them!

Vivian Maier's Street Photographer was a christmas present I keep going back to. I find her portraits to be absolutely stunning.
"Composition In Stone" photographs by Craig Richards.
Last Saturday I got "Picasso and Jacqueline" book by David Douglas Duncan for 1€ at flea market. Beautiful book.
Did you know that Alice in Wonderland was written by a rather good photographer? That's inspirational in itself...

"Urban Landscapes', "Seacoast Maine". Fields of Peace", "Paterson II" George Tice
"departures and arrivals" Charles Harbutt
"Road to Seeing" Dan Winters
"50 Portraits" Gregory Heisler
I've been in a pictureless funk for a while and am looking for inspiration. Also, I own prints by Sexton and Cratsley and have now been looking at works by Sammallahti and Tice.
