Welcome to the New Model Army book and text selection, a guide to the band's favorite books. NMA, like many people, enjoy reading - especially during the many miles they travel while on tour, and the long hours spent in hotel rooms before and after performances - with a book, you can be 'at home' anywhere. This list will be updated at intervals to incorporate the band's current favorites. If you have a particular favourite book, please write a short review or description of it an send it to us here, and we'll create a fan's Book List to add to this section - we look forward to receiving your thoughts on this matter. RDB.
