    An interesting post:

    Many favourites so it's hard to select. I read less than I should.

    Fiction
    -------
    The Cybergypsies by Indra Sinha - A little known book about the early days of playing MUDs on the Internet: beautifully written and quite disturbing.

    Oliver Twist by Dickens.

    Ovid's Metamorphosis - Haven't read it for a long time, but it's good.

    The Lord of the Rings - A classic, and I live near the original 'Two Towers'! Yes ... they are real, and stand off Monument Road in central Birmingham where Tolkien was educated. It's also on the edge of the red light district.

    Poetry
    ------
    Zen poems are always good. Basho etc.
    Ted Hughes
    Phillip Larkin

    Non-fiction & Biog.
    -------------------
    Charlie Chaplins autobiography
    'The Beatles' by Hunter Davies (my dad grew up with Hunter in Carlisle ... the original and best Beatles biog.)
    Autobiography of a Super Tramp by WH Davies
    I am always doing that which I can not do, in order that I may learn how to do it. - Pablo Picasso
