A list of books I've read over the past few years

Current Read

I'm currently reading "The Last Fighting Tommy - the life story of Harry Patch". I watched a program about Andrew Motion's poem to celebrate Harry's life - aired on the day of his funeral - and decided I'd like to learn more about this unassuming man. Turns out he's an ordinary guy who just happened to turn 18 during the Great War, so was sent off to fight...

No idea if (or if so, why) anyone would be interested in this, but here's a list of the books that I've read over the past few years. The list originally came about as I was having a clear out and needed to take most of the books to the local charity shop. I thought that making a list of the authors I enjoyed might help me find other works by the same in due course. It was just a short step from that to deciding to publish the list on Shot18.com, but a major task getting it all online!

So here it is... irregularly updated as I add new books to the list.
