I've read 29 of them (not counting movie adaptations, otherwise it'd be
much, much higher) - but because there are a few clusters of books from
the same author, anyone who's a fan of Dickens, Pratchett, Austen and JK
Rowling will do well. Should have been 1 book per author.

Still, I was fairly happy to be able to tick Midnight's Children. I wonder
what the Scotland-specific results are, as I suspect I'll have done fairly
well in that.


"Names, once they are in common use, quickly
 become mere sounds, their etymology being
 buried, like so many of the earth's marvels,
 beneath the dust of habit." - Salman Rushdie
