  1. Yay! I love giveaways! This is a hard question, but I would answer "Orlando" by Virginia Woolf.
    Cheers!

  2. Thanks for entering Tara! I hate to admit this but I haven't read Orlando yet. I need to put that right at the top of my "Must Read" list.

  3. One of my favorite books is called The Blue Zones: Lessons for Living Longer From the People Who've Lived the Longest by Dan Buettner. Its is about places all over the world where people live the longest. Absolutely amazing!

  10. Gosh, it is very difficult to choose just one, seeing as I am a total book slut.
    I love everything written by Fran├žoise Sagan. She writes so very succinctly on the human condition, and with such wit and intensity. Wonderful clouds is a good starting place, but seriously, every book of hers is worth reading.

    I am also a massive Michael Faber fan, The Crimson Petal and The White is one of my most loved stories ever.

    Frank Kafka's The Trial gave me the heebie jeebies for weeks afterwards, I had to take a break in between and read something fluffy to prolong the experience of feeling so uncomfortable whilst reading a book. It actually gave me strange dreams, one of them being me involved in a trial, not knowing why.

    OK, I will stop now, I am blabbing.
    Lovely blog by the way.

    That is how I found you, by noticing your name in somebody's blog roll.
