Back Link Books Dear to My Heart

Marie, one of authors in a blog (Crockatt & Powell Booksellers) I read regularly, wrote an entry titled, I Heart Books. The list of her favourite books was not based on notable literary merit rather it was complied of books close to her heart. The best types of books, don’t you think?

Here is Marie’s, from the Crockatt & Powell Bookseller shop in London, list:

Little Women - Louisa M Alcott
A Prayer for Owen Meany - John Irving
Tales of the City - Armistead Maupin
Once More With Feeling - Victoria Coren and Charlie Skelton
Cat's Eye - Margaret Atwood
Pride and Prejudice - Jane Austen
Frog In Winter - Max Velthuijs

My list is as follows:

The Book of Ebenezer LePage, G.B. Edwards
The Curve of Time, M. Wylie Blanchet
A Country Year, Sue Hubbell
bird by bird, Anne Lamott
In Patagonia, Bruce Chatwin
Running in the Family, Michael Ondaatje
Kindergarten, Peter Rushforth

If would be interesting if you could send in some of your favourites…
