Books I Love; a baker’s dozen
Click on the covers to buy the books.
I’m 55 and have been reading a long time, so I have just chosen some books that are personal to me and somehow to do with Changing the Subject. This does not mean to say that The Iliad, The Odyssey, Mill on the Floss, Vanity Fair, Crime and Punishment, Moby Dick and War and Peace are not some of the best novels I ever read. It’s just that those books have affected me in, different, more tangential, that is the usual ways.
I know its corny but it’s also true; if I were to have a hand in influencing one person to read any one of these authors, I would be very proud. The links are to Amazon because that is the way most books are bought nowadays and I am also doing a thing where I get a commission if you click on the image and buy some of the paperbacks; win win. Bear in mind that, if you have the time, they are none of them particularly recent and so may well be found on second hand book sites or charity or second hand book shops in the real world. Most of the writers have a fantastic back catalogue and a good browse is also well worth it.
The books are listed in the order in which I read them over the years. The time and circumstances of reading a book are very important and are best explored by better writers than me.
