As an ex-touring sailor I'm happy to re-read "Sailing Alone around the World" by Joshua Slocum or "Tinkerbelle" by Robert Manry anytime.  

The best tough guy/mystery/noir novels are the Parker novels by Richard Stark (pen name of Donald E. Westlake, one of the finest writers living).

For light reading I love Carl Hiaasen's books, especially since I live in Florida.

There are plenty of good (and plenty of bad) books by touring cyclists. Every touring cyclist is different but there is always something to learn.

I am currently re-reading Lonesome Dove. Excellent! It'd be great on a long tour. You could be part of the outfit...a hand!

Yes, yes, yes to Carl Hiaasen! Few authors are funnier. If you ever get a chance to listen to his stories narrated by George Wilson, do so. Wilson nails the personalities perfectly.
