Wow! What a response. Now we need to whittle the suggested books down to 4 or 5 of the most popular before we make our final choice of purple prose.
Please put your 1st choice and 2nd choice of book in the comment box. Bear in mind the book needs to be currently in print and readily available to all.
I’ll publish the 4 or 5 most popular on Children, Chocolate and Wine. Then we can vote for the book we want to read this time.
