  7. This is a little embarassing. Mine is The Cat in the Hat. My children and I enjoyed immensely when they were younger and those memories of them having fun makes it my favourite!!! Now I have to wait for grandchildren to do it all over again and I cant wait. Cheeky Cat.

  27. Many years ago I visited Salisbury and the beautiful Cathedral. I bought a book there to read on my travels. It was Sarum (the Roman name for Salisbury)by Edward Rutherfurd. It followed tens of thousands of years of families in Sarum. I was just blown away by the sheer enormity of writing a book like that, the logistics of keeping it all consistent and cohesive. Just amazing and a great read. (Also made me realize what a pea sized brain I had!)

  28. Antarctica on a Plate by Alexa Thomson - a girl from Wollongong who with next-to-no experience lands a job as cook in Antarctica. It shows that women can do anything! Very amusing and inspirational.

  41. Hmmm... my favourite book? Ever? Bird by bird by Anne Lamott is a book about writing that changed my views on writing so that was pretty influential. But the book that broke me down, brought me to tears, wrenched my heart open in exquisite pain with its unbelievably delicate words and perfect sentences was Chris Cleave's The Other Hand. Simply brilliant.

  72. There are so many books that I love, it's hard to have a favorite. But I'd have to say it's Sunday's at Tiffany's by James Patterson. I could read that over and over and over again!
