Re: Poll: What kind of books do you like to read most?

I lack the concentration to read and digest.

 

The only book in the house is Danny The Champion of the World. A childhood favourite that a teacher gave to me back in the day. I must dig it out and give it a try.

Re: Poll: What kind of books do you like to read most?

@Glory1 

@Cleoriff

Thanks for the titles, I've definitely added them to my (very long) reading list to pick up at some point smiley

 

@Anonymous I've never heard of this Roald Dhal book! Have you tried Graphic novels? I find them much easier to read and digest myself, becaus eof the visual aspect. I can recommend a few if you're interested wink

 

@Poppysmum The Damage Done echoes in essence some documentaries I've watched recently on Netflix, so it might be a good one for my list - thanks for taking the time to share some titles, they seem quite varied!

My boys had every Roald Dahl book written @EmilieT

A wonderful writer of childrens books. He wrote  Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and said he much preferred Johnny Depps version of the film as it was as dark as he intended it to be...

Your boys had good taste @Cleoriff wink Did they have a favourite out of the many stories Roald Dalh wrote?

 

@Poppysmum I always forget to check for the free Kindle books, might have a look after work, thanks for the tip! Also once you've read the Damage Done I'd love to know what you thought slight smile

[ Edited ]

Currently reading, a page at a time due to lack of concentration, a large hardback book on Norse Gods with lots of pictures in the Art Nouveau style flash ... only read it when I'm out on a table 

 

Just finished reading the captions mostly & looking at the wonderful photos in John Brookes original edition of his ground breaking book 'The Small Garden' ... 2nd hand off Ebay ... also sent my son & daughter-in-law at about June time same hardback book in better quality off Amazon sunflower

 

Can't find the book with a title something like 'The monk who owned a Ferrari' ... it was lent to me so I shall buy another one off Amazon for my friend who let me borrow it = it was lent to him as the original owner of the book said to my friend 'I think you'll like this book, it has 'Life Lessons'' ... I know whereabouts I'm up to in the story
