Your Desert Island books

Posted by Yvonne Barlow on Friday, April 8, 2016
While I put my interests almost firmly in the non-fiction camp when choosing books to take to a desert island, it seems, dear readers, that you prefer the classics.
The Hobbit, Heart of Darkness, Wuthering Heights and D.H. Lawrence's Women in Love came top in the books you chose. The Hobbit seemed popular because many of you read it in impressionable youth. The others, all for romantic reasons. One reader said Women in Love reminded her of university days with their earnest discussions of society and romance. Hmm - happy times! But no judgement from me - I chose an anthology of women travellers with all their robberies and strife (it does make me want to take off across the seas).
Keep them coming. What book would be at the top of your pile as you journeyed to a desert island?
