Another year gone by so here's an update of my reading
Louis Schwartzberg and Eugenia Bone£25.00 £23.25
Beautifully produced book that goes with the Netflix documentary but tells you so much more about how fungi lives and can save lives
Sarah Gainham£12.99 £12.08
Recommended to me and evocative and chilling. The story of Vienna as the Nazis took over.
David Quantick£26.99 £25.10
David Quantick - the comedy writer (recently a guest on our podcast) and a quirky, filmic story of a book that never existed.
David Seabrook£10.00 £9.30
Sad, elegiac, disturbing portrait of the eddies of English - especially Kentish - life
Peter Godfrey-Smith£9.99 £9.29
Fascinating look at what constitutes intelligence (warning: contains a shocking fact about octopus lives...)
Susanna Clarke£14.99 £13.94
I loved Johnathan Strange & Mr Norrell and this drew me in from the start. Definitely one of my books of the year.
Sophie Rickard£14.99 £13.94
This illustrated version tells the tale in an easily accessible way. Should be compulsory reading in all schools.
Robin Ince£17.98 £16.72
Robin was a guest at our first live/podcast event. What a great evening & the book is almost as good!
The Language of Food: "Mouth-watering and sensuous, a real feast for the imagination" BRIDGET COLLINS
Annabel Abbs£14.99 £13.94
All about Eliza Action and Mrs Beeton's plagiarism of her recipes.
