What's the best book you've EVER read ?

Posted: Yesterday at 10:45

I am reading Waxed Fruit by J McCrone for the third time. First book in a trilogy ,

it is a novel based on the growth of Glasgow. A must for anyone who loves the city.

it was my grannies book!

think there are some superb recommendations here. We should start a book group!

Verdin, I think many of us have had same experience.   

What have you lost Fairy? What is this about a hurricane?
