Favourite books

A ReadingSocial (Virtual Bookshelf) reader on Facebook wrote to me: "Hey, I noticed you've read a lot of boooooks. Can you please help me with your top five books? I've begun a list of books I want to read and I want to diversify what I read. Can you please include any spritual books? "
 
It took a while for me to pick five books and identifying my top five books would take months so I recommended:
  • Peter Ackroyd. Hawksmoor
  • William Blake. Songs of Innocence and Experience
  • Kahil Gibran. The Prophet
  • George Grossmith. Diary of a Nobody
  • Alan Watts. Tao, the watercourse way
What would you have suggested?

Furtle's favourite fiction

I do not know of Mary Selby so I have found a copy of Gargoyles and Port on ABEbooks for 50p. Three Men on the Bummel is my favourite JKJ although it is close run by Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow. Fry's The Liar is a comic masterpiece. I did not like Pickwick Papers when I read it many years ago and I have yet to connect to Dickens in general. I plan to give him another try one day. And I share your enthusiasm for the entire Sherlock Holmes canon.
