This is such a hard one. I love books. I always seem to be reading a million of them at any one time. I also love book shopping. In fact I don't even love to read as much as I just love to have books around me and to buy them. There is something magic about books.
So, one of my absolute all time favourite books that I refer to all the time and couldn't live without would have to be Stephanie Alexander - A Cook's Companion.
As for novels I couldn't narrow it down to one. But here are a few of my fav's:
- In The City of Shy Hunters - Tom Spanbauer
- The Time Travellers Wife - Audrey Niffenegger
- Shantaram - Gregory David Roberts
- Dirt Music - Tim Winton
- Modoc - Ralph Helfer
- The God of Small Things - Arundhati Roy
All of these stories captured my heart and my imagination. If you haven't read any of them I would suggest picking up a copy of each and every one. And besides, why not add more books to your collection.
