Penguin has posted 52 books which it believes you should plough through this year. A good idea but having looked at the list there was not that much that was inspiring and so I will be opting for my own alternatives.
Mind you some things that do chime are the Darwin, bearing in mind the anniversary this year and the mass media coverage he will be getting. Plus And The Hippos were boiled in the tanks by William S Burroughs sounds like an experience worth going for.
Anyway see what you think by viewing the list.
