In no particular order….
Land Rover Series III Parts Catalogue and Repair Operation Manual. Two separate books but they both save me a sh!tload of money. And it means I can sit outside, head in book, issuing instructions.
Mostly these days when I pick up something it’s probably a superb second-hand three-volume set of Somerset Maugham short stories that I bought a few years ago in Malaga.
Anything (apart from Brighton Rock) by Graham Greene, especially Our Man In Havana
The Idiot – Dostoevsky
The Scarlet and the Black – Stendahl
Midnight’s Children – Rushdie
Love in the time of Cholera – Gabriel Garcia Marquez – and his other books
Most stuff by Conrad, especially Nostromo
And that leaves me two more to think about as I go off to bed.
If anyone wants to play tag – you can do your ten favourite books – or a quickie – what are you reading now?
Tomorrow is the Story of the Bedford.
