I was thinking. What would I consider my 5 favourite books of all time?
Lists like this tend to be interesting but often disappointing for other readers. The number of times I enthusiastically recommend a book to someone only to never hear a peep of a review back.
Likewise, I might check out a book based on the say-so of someone whose opinion I respect only to find it fulminantly …meh.
So here for your interest is a quick list of my 5 fave books of all time. I imagine with a more lingering introspection I might want to alter it.
I won’t go into all the reasons for each choice (they are varied and personal and often linked to other aspects of my own autobiography), but suffice to say I have love-battered, dog-eared, food-blotted physical copies of all of them, and a few of them I have read at least 5 times.
I have linked through to a Goodreads summary of each book title if you are interested in exploring them.
So that’s my list. I think it only fair you share a quick list of your own 5 faves in the comments section!
