I have forgotten at least thirty.
  1. The Diary of Adrian Mole Aged 13 3/4 - Sue Townsend
    The funniest book I've ever read.
  2. Mort - Terry Pratchett
    The best introduction to Discworld and nigh-on perfect.
  3. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy - Douglas Adams
    Hysterically, spectacularly incentive. Towels!
  4. Never Let Me Go - Kazuo Ishiguro
  5. I Remember Nothing: and Other Reflections - Nora Ephron
    Nora Ephron: GODDESS
  6. Norwegian Wood - Haruki Murakami
    I felt so smug when I used to recommend this to people in uni. Especially when they read it.
  7. Talking Heads - Alan Bennett
  8. Travelling to Work - Michael Palin
    Like a friendlier Indiana Jones.
  9. Which Lie Did I Tell? More Adventures in the Screen Trade - William Goldman
    A book full of Hollywood stories that you actually WANT to read.
