Reading list: who's in the running for tonight's British Sports Book Awards?

Here’s a handy guide to the nominees for tonight’s awards ceremony in London.

LOOKING FOR SOME new sports books to fill up your shelves? Well, look no further.

The 2011 British Sports Book Awards take place this evening in London’s Savoy Hotel with over 50 books vying for honours across nine different literary categories.

The Irish interest in this evening’s proceedings is provided by former Leinster and Ireland star Bernard Jackman whose insider account of the Michael Cheika years at Leinster, Blue Blood, is shortlisted for the Best Rugby Book award. The Tullow native faces stiff competition, however, not least from Brian Moore whose acclaimed autobiography, Beware of the Dog, is also nominated in the same category.

Just in case you’re popping out to the bookshop in the near future, here’s a handy guide to the shortlisted books in the Best Autobiography and Best Biography categories.
