I was a bit surprised that the Magus was in that list. I guess that while
it's not that widely read it must make a big impact on those that have read
it.  Hows about an evolt big read?  My vote goes to Primary Colours.

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.
