I love books. Everything about them – not just the reading of books but also the feel of them, the joy of turning the pages and the feeling of actually consuming a book as you whizz through it. Which is why one of the items I can safely say I will never purchase will be a Kindle or other e-book reader. Whilst a lot can be said for taking a Kindle with you on your travels instead of a heavy pile of books, I’d opt to lug around a stack of books with me any day because, for me, nothing can beat the feel of a good book in your hands.
Earlier this week it was World Book Day – a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and, most importantly, reading. More than 100 countries join in the celebration and it’s an opportunity to encourage children and adults to appreciate the joy of reading.
With this in mind, I thought I’d take the opportunity to share with you my Top Ten books – although there are many more I could add to the list. Click here to see what they are. What are your fave books of all time?
