Top Ten Tuesday: My Dad’s Ten Favourite Books

toptentuesday2

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and The Bookish, and this week’s theme is a Fathers’ Day freebie. I thought about all the different types of dad-related lists I could do, but settled on my dad’s favourite books. This afternoon I really confused my dad by asking him to tell me his ten favourite books. He doesn’t know about this blog, and I didn’t fancy explaining it all, so I left him in his confusion! But onto the list.

1. Down and Out in Paris and London by George Orwell

As you can see, my dad and I do not share much taste in books! What do you think of my list? Have you read any of them? Let me know in the comments!
