The books of my life or My life as a bookworm
R. A. Christer "Raspberry Bazaar"
Tim Catchamouse (Ladybird Puddle Lane Stage 1)
"And so it began ... with Puddle Lane ... how I learned to read! This was my favourite!"
"Not long after, I entered the British educational system at the age of four and a half completely besotted with Roald Dahl! Especially The Twits!"
Inga and the Reindeer: A Story from Lapland
"I fell i love with this book the moment I opened it ... the story is beautiful and the illustration superb."
Famous Five: 4: Five Go To Smuggler's Top
"For a while I was absolutely obsessed with Enid Blyton ... I would read little else. My favourite was always Five Go to Smuggler's Top."
"Ahhh ... Bogwopit ... basically what my cat would look like if he was vaguely related to a duck. It's an absolute gem, I have treasured my copy for well over a decade."
"I read this when I was about 9 and was absolutely enchanted as many before me were and many after. Everybody should read this book, even if it is only to discover that it's "not your cup of tea"."
"From the age of 9 to 12 I read solidly ... many of the books I read were of the redwall series ... I remember one week where I read 1 a night for 4 nights before moving on to ..."
The Lord of the Rings - illustrated hardback
"Reading The Lord Of The Rings ... I was one of those children who would have moved into the local library given half a chance."
Guards! Guards!: (Discworld Novel 8) (Discworld Novels)
"It was not long after that I discovered Terry Pratchett. Guards Guards was the first that I read and to this day it is still my favourite."
"And from there I discovered Neil Gaiman too and read Good Omens ... which should be a set text in all schools."
The Vampire Lestat (Second Volume of the Vampire Chronicles)
"Somehow from there I got into Anne Rice, I'm not sure why, I was about 12. The first I read was actually The Vampire Lestat, not Interview with a Vampire."
Memnoch The Devil (Volume 5 of The Vampire Chronicles)
"From there I read most of her books and stumbled upon Memnoch the Devil when I was 13 ... which has remained my favourite for the last 9 years and is another book I think that everybody should read!"
The Hitchhiker Trilogy Boxset
"Then GCSEs hit and my recreational time went out of the window. Until ... I discovered audio books and hence felt compelled to read this. And that started me off on a bit of a sci-fi thing ..."
Shakespeare: The Complete Works (Collector's Library Editions)
"Until along came Shakespeare! It started with english lit homework and ended with me reading the complete works!"
Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone
"I'll skip forward now ... past my A Levels as I had very little time for reading then. To my first year of university ... when (somewhat late) I discovered Harry Potter ... in Heathrow Airport!"
The Abhorsen Trilogy 3 Volume Boxed Set
"I rediscovered reading during my time at university. I read a lot of random books and discovered Garth Nix whos Abhorson Trilogy I have recommended to my friends over and over again."
The Black Magician Trilogy Omnibus
"It was during this time that I also discovered Trudi Canavan and her spellbinding dark magician trilogy."
The Tales of the Otori Trilogy
"And Lian Hearn's Otori Trilogy which utterly sucked me in."
Pride and Prejudice
"I also rediscovered Pride and Predjudice with a little help from a friend and in reading it found a humour in the words which I had been to young to see before."
The End (A Series of Unfortunate Events)
"And so we come to the present ... what am I reading now? Call me childish if you will but I have to read the final Lemony Snicket ... I must find out what happens."
Wintersmith (Discworld Novels)
"I also have the new Terry Pratchett, Wintersmith, to read. Which I don't doubt will be hilarious as ever."
Lady Friday (The Keys to the Kingdom, Book 5)
"And then there's those books which i eagerly await the publication of ... Lady Friday"
Physik (Septimus Heap)
"And Physik, the third book from Angie Sage who I discovered on a dreary afternoon in Waterstones."
"Oh and Interworld, the latest offering from the great Neil Gaiman."
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Book 7) [Children's Edition]
"And last but by no means least ... the conclusion to J.K. Rowlings masterpiece!"
