Books I Have Read


I love to read and wish I had got the bug earlier but I only caught it in 2009 whilst spending an elongated piece of time living alone in a campervan in Australia.  Great days; introspective, enlightening, wondrous days.

This is a not an exhaustive list and I will add to it over time.  It is a list of books that had an impact on me and not just something I used to while away the time.  It is also not in any particular order, although I will list any new additions at the top so that you can see what has been added since the last time you looked.
