Bookshelves say a lot about people. A collection of 30 odd books from the same author may equal obsessive behaviour; the first in a few different series’ are the signs of an explorer; a host of classics denote an old soul and a slew of murder mysteries, a budding detective. Personally, I love to collect books. Borrowing is a cost effective method but ownership allows the journey to be undertaken again and again. Which I do. Going back to a page or a chapter that was just brilliant for its content, style or prose is a hobby. Below is a (constantly growing) list of books that have become firm favourites.

The Princess Bridefor its tongue in cheek dialogue and quirky characters
Great Expectationsbecause Pip is no great hero, but he stumbles through just fine
Misery for creeping me out at 13 like no other book had before
