A New Book List: your time is up...

Any latecomers out there?
If so, get your lists in pronto. I'm going to spend the next week or so working on a final run down and hopefully come up with a list that will get everyone talking.
Going by the raw data so far it's going to be an intriguing result. Perhaps not as daring as I thought it might be, but it has highlighted a few issues I want to address in the future, should we attempt to compile such a list again.
In the meantime I would like to say a big, big thank you to everyone who bothered to take part by sending me their favourite ever books.

One thing is clear: people love books. Keep reading...


  1. As I Lay Dying /Faulkner
    After Many a Summer/Huxley
    Portrait of the Artist.../Joyce
    Under the Volcano/Lowry
    To Kill a Mockingbird/ Lee
    Canopus in Argos/Lessing
    and any Montalbano/Camilleri
