Favourite Books

Below, please find a list of my top 20 favourite books. They are in alphabetical order - I am afraid I couldn't possibly come up with a top three. However, this list was compiled five years ago, and there has been a lot of water under the bridge since then. So I plan to give you some revised lists shortly...
