What books does everyone recommend for the camino frances? I'm looking for a guide book, with limited personal details and more about the facts of the trip, like where to eat or better yet not eat, sleep and such. Any help would be great, thanks.

You would not call it a guide book but almost indispensible is the CSJ's "The Camino Frances 2006"
http://tinyurl.com/hrfyk

It is packed with the most up to date details on where to sleep etc and is small and light so easy to carry.

Walking the Camino de Santiago
a Walker's Guide by Bethan Davies & Ben Cole

That's what I would advice.
