This is asking the blindingly obvious after Catharine's idea about a group and the discussion that followed. It also follows other discussions recently about Pride and Prejudice and Sons and Lovers. It is a bit Facebook listlike but I am curious because of one simple thing. We know each other 'virtually'. I cannot do as I do so often; walk over to your bookshelves and have a look at what you have. It is probably nosy, but I like to know people a bit better and books are one of the few clues we ever show each other. Sadly that may pass as more people only have e-books (sigh, sigh). Anyway, here I go asking the blindingly obvious questions.
Which are people's favourite books? Perhaps a top five or ten, as you wish. Then, which are your favourite genres? The main ones really. Do any of you prefer non-fiction of any kind to fiction? So many people like travelogues, science, cookery and so on that it cannot be overlooked. Perhaps people like a mixture of fiction and non-fiction.
I think it would certainly make it easier for me not to make a ridiculous choice of reading for that group by getting an idea of what the range of reading may be. I shall only say that I like both fiction and non-fiction more or less equally.
