My Favourite Bookshelf

There are now over twenty books in 'The No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency' series. Here is one to start on!

‘Acqua Alta’

If you want to get to know Venice through the eyes of its most famous detective, read on!

‘Many Cargoes’

Montesquieu wrote "I have never known any distress that an hour's reading did not relieve." If you're reading W. W. Jacobs, reduce the time to five minutes.

The Jungle Books

Mowgli's survival in the jungle and Rikki-Tkki- Tavi's war against the cobras, Nag and Nagaina, are worth reading again and again.

Read this book. You may well add it to your favourite bookshelf.

A Little Light Weeding

Whether gardening or reading about gardening, do a little and often.

This is the first book I come to on my favourite bookshelf. I think I will take it down this evening and remind myself of the diabolical plan of the Norwood builder.


We all have a favourite bookshelf. Over the next few weeks you're welcome to take down and browse through some of the books on mine.
