Some people have asked what are my favourite books (non-advertising).
At the agency, I ask everyone to list their all-time favourite top 10 books, films, and tracks on the central server.
(Kind of like “Desert Island Discs”, you have to restrict it to 10.)
That way anyone can check in and get ideas for new stuff to read or listen to, whenever they want.
So this is my book list.
There are loads more, but this is the top 10.
Not in any order.
