The Art of Loving (Classics of Personal Development)
The Art of Loving (Classics of Personal Development)

Jeeves and Wooster Omnibus: The Mating Season; the Code of the Woosters; Right Ho, Jeeves
Jeeves and Wooster Omnibus: The Mating Season; the Code of the Woosters; Right Ho, Jeeves
"A collection by the greatest comic writer ever. Jeeves and Wooster are the perfect comedy duo."
Stalking Darkness (Nightrunner)
Stalking Darkness (Nightrunner)

L'Enchanteur (Folio)
L'Enchanteur (Folio)
"The most beautiful book I have ever read. Funny, naughty, sad and moving. Pity there is no English translation of this masterpiece."
The Three Musketeers (Wordsworth Classics)
The Three Musketeers (Wordsworth Classics)
"What can I say about this book? It's so great, fun, adventure and great characters. Loved by children and grown-ups around the world."
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Book 3) Paperback
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Book 3) Paperback
"My favourite HP by a mile(Book 6 wasn't half bad either). Lupin and Sirius are great characters and the twist at the end was a genuine shock at the time."
A History of the Crusades: Volume 2 - The Kingdom of Jerusalem and the Frankish East 1100-1187: The Kingdom of Jerusalem and the Frankish East 1100-1187 v. 2
A History of the Crusades: Volume 2 - The Kingdom of Jerusalem and the Frankish East 1100-1187: The Kingdom of Jerusalem and the Frankish East 1100-1187 v. 2
"A truly readable academic history book, which is an extinct breed these days. Infinitely more entertaining than the appallingly bad "Kingdom of Heaven"."
Selected Poems (German Texts)
Selected Poems (German Texts)
"O God, what does it say about me that my favourite poetry is 800 old? Hand to God, it's still great stuff and quite naughty too."
Das Doppelte Lottchen
Das Doppelte Lottchen
"Spawned a million and one copy-cat books and movies, but this is the original. Kaestner proves that Germans can write great children's books."
Ronia, the Robber's Daughter
Ronia, the Robber's Daughter
"In my view, Lindgren's best work. Not as funny as some others, nor as realistic, but beautiful and poignant. Great reading for adults and kids alike."
Foucault's Pendulum
Foucault's Pendulum
"The antidote to the bloody "Da Vinci Code". So heavy-going that most critics didn't even read it, but it's defintely worth the trouble. The twist at the end makes it worth it all."
The Name of the Rose (Reading Guide Edition)
The Name of the Rose (Reading Guide Edition)
"Eco is an intellectual giant with a wicked sense of humour and his story of a medieval Sherlock Holmes hunting for forbidden books and a murderer proves it."
LA Confidential: Classic Noir
LA Confidential: Classic Noir
"A crime classic. The movie was great and complex, but the book is so much more. Multiple stories and a cast of thousands deftly handled. What a ride!"
The Life of My Choice
The Life of My Choice
"A sane version T.E. Lawrence. One of the last great explorers. Great writing and beautiful photos."
Complete Works of Oscar Wilde (Collins Classics)
Complete Works of Oscar Wilde (Collins Classics)
"The man was a genius and he can be quoted in almost any situation. Every well-stocked library needs his collected works."
Shaw George Bernard : Caesar and Cleopatra (The Shaw library)
Shaw George Bernard : Caesar and Cleopatra (The Shaw library)
"Another eccentric Irish genius. Shaw lived to over 90 and commented on everything, but this play is my undisputed favourite among his works."
Ride the Wind: The Story of Cynthia Ann Parker and the Last Days of the Comanche
Ride the Wind: The Story of Cynthia Ann Parker and the Last Days of the Comanche
"One of my favourite books as a teenager. Cheesy, but good, I still love it. Also, one of the few historical novels I can stomach."
Treasure Island (Penguin Popular Classics)
Treasure Island (Penguin Popular Classics)
"One of the ultimate adventure classics. Long John Silver is amongst the greatest villains ever written. Not to mention Blind Pew and Ben Gun. Great stuff, no kid should grow up without it."
A Little Princess (Classic Starts)
A Little Princess (Classic Starts)
"Yet another childhood favourite. I have to be the only person ever to prefer this to "The Secret Garden", but I just loved Sara."
