I would say that in general I dont lie that often about books that I havent read (well possibly I might have done at uni about 'Ulysses' by that Irish bloke but probably not since then). Anyway, this article made me think through the books I do read and love and possibly wouldnt admit to except I think its silly to have pretentions around what books you read, films you see, tv series you follow.

Nr 1: Barbara Cartland. Anything by her. I have probably read most, bought second hand and then passed on to greatful friends (you know who you are)

Nr 2: Fantasy. I cant remember any of the storylines and that is the charm. Fairy tales for grown ups and quite addictive.

Nr 3: Childrens fiction. Not just HP and Northern Lights, but other random series that are written for anyone from 10-14 but probably not with a 35 year old in mind.

My best is when you combine nr 2 and nr3 - like Lirael or Twilight or Wintersmith. Does it get better than that?

I'm one and I'm proud. There's nothing better than reading Barbara Cartland, L.M. Montgomery, Laura Ingalls Wilder or David Eddings when in Skåne.
