  2. I would add these books to the list:
    1. The Source, James Michner
    2. Sarum, Edwrd Rutherford
    3. White Teeth, Zadie Smith
    4. Headlong, Michael Frayn
    5. The Blind Assassin, Margaret Atwood
    6. Life Before Man, Margaret Atwood

    I would list more, but David wants his lunch. ha ha

    Bloggers are obviously impressive readers too. I’ve got White Teeth on my to read shelf as well. When the cuts deepen we will no longer have a Library Van so we will have to rely on presents, re-reading old ones and amazon.

  4. friko says:

    books? I haven’t got time for books. not nowadays when I’m blogging.

    I see there are very few foreign books in the pile and a lot of children’s books.
    There are also a lot of books I would probably never have on my pile, Pratchett, Pilcher etc.

    I ploughed through White Teeth but gave up caring for the characters 2/3 of the way through.

  5. chris says:

    I find I’ve read exactly half of these – but what a weird selection! I read the first Harry Potter as I had to do it with a S1 class when it first came out, but felt no desire to read any more, and have no interest in Pratchett. (Mind you , I have read all the Arthur Ransome ones…) But there are so many books I’d add to this that at this hour of the night I haven’t the energy to list them.

  6. Marcia Mayo says:

    Oh, I can’t even imagine where to start. I’ve ready pretty consistently since I was about eight – not all great literature that I would care to brag about, but much of it was certainly worth reading.
