My twenty books meme

Thinking logically about the last post, it doesn’t really say that much about how widely (or otherwise) I’m read and what my real tastes are. There’s not that many science fiction or humorous books on either list, for example. So below (in no particular order,but grouping the same author together as it reflects my bookshelves) are 20 books I have, love and have probably read lots of times that aren’t on either of the ‘top 100’ lists from the previous post.

1. [x+] A Girl in the Head, J.G. Farrell
2. [x+] The Siege of Krishnapur, J.G. Farrell
3. [x+] The Singapore Grip, J.G. Farrell
