My ten favourite books

Someone has asked me on Twitter for my ten favourite books, so I said I'd post them on here.

In no particular order ... except that Leaving Home is definitely my number one...

Leaving Home by Garrison Keillor

A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith

The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton

Homestead by Rosina Lippi

Happenstance by Carol Shields

Heartburn by Nora Ephron

Breathing Lessons by Anne Tyler

The Siege by Helen Dunmore

Writing Down the Bones by Natalie Goldberg (non-fiction book about writing)

In a Father's Place by Christopher Tilghman

If it was ten novels you were after, Valerie, substitute Unless by Carol Shields for the Natalie Goldberg book.

I hope I haven't forgotten one. Getting the last two was a bit tough when I am away from home and my bookshelves.
