52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy & History – Books

This is the 23rd challenge in a weekly series from GeneaBloggers called 52 weeks of personal genealogy and  history, suggested  by Amy Coffin,  that invite genealogists to record memories and insights about their own lives for future descendants.  Week 23 – Books.

I wasn’t a child who read much – but that has changed since growing up.

Of course like many children of my generation I recall reading Enid Blyton.  I was a Secret Seven reader.

I also remember reading Animal Farm (George Orwell), The Day of The Triffids (John Wyndham) and The Catcher in The Rye (J D Sallinger).  I know that I must have read more than that because I have memories of going to the local library and borrowing books but there is nothing else that has really stuck in my mind.

Since becoming an adult I now read regularly – especially crime fiction.  My list of favourite authors include John Grisham, Mark Billingham, Peter Robinson, Lee Child, Michael Connelly and David Baldacci.

Both me and my wife (Jayne) were sucked in to the Harry Potter phenomenon and have read them all.

The bookshelves at home include quite a number of non-fiction which tend to be political or sports biographies – many of which remain unread, although I have good intentions.
