This is probably the most complete Land's End to John O'Groats bibliography around.  It includes every book I'm aware of that is completely or largely about journeying from one end of Britain to the other, so please let me know if you hear of any others, so I can add them too.  It also includes some books where only part of the book is about End to End travel, but I haven't attempted to include all of these. To qualify for the bibliography a book has to cover a journey or journeys between the south of England and the north of Scotland, and it must not be a journey largely by sea.  The table shows how many books I've found in each category, and if you click on the number in a cell it will take you to a list of them.

Most of the books listed are out of print.  If you want to find copies on the secondhand market, I can recommend:

www.abebooks.co.uk, which gives you access to the catalogues of a large number of secondhand dealers
www.bookfinder.com, which searches abebooks and a number of other sources, but doesn't have the flexible search of abebooks
www.amazon.co.uk, which can also find a lot of the same books on the secondhand market
