A few years ago I began to get the Booker shortlist as a Christmas present in order to widen my reading. I loved Wolf Hall but the one that I really couldn't put down was The narrow road to the deep north'.
I have enjoyed all of the books I've read for different reasons. Some I have puzzled about and others I have persevered with, but I have finished them all!
