one of those self indulgent thingys. just some so called tomes that have impacted me, changed me, made me laugh or just make me shake my head… and ya ones I still like to have a look at…
(roughly in chronogical order)
Chronicles of Narnia – every re-read from the age of 7 till today is brill
Tinkle – Yes! had all the issues from 1 – 127. lot of the stories and characters stick. Tantri the Mantri, and Shikari Shambu…
Target – those who complain about my humour can blame my grandfather and this great mag. It was coool.
Asterix – how do they get puns to translate so well?
Tintin – cool characters ‘to be precise school tractors’. ‘Ten Thousand Thundering Typhoons and Billions of Blue Blistering Barnacles.’
The Bible – well it’s not really a book in a normal sense. It’s a great collection of writings. Pretty much the central bit of literature or writing to my life.
Tolkien – no i’m not a fanatic. I’ve read the Hobbit only twice, LOTR twice and Silmarillion one and a half times. I want to live with Tom Bombadil.
My first book of riddles – Why did the two inkspots cry? Because their mother was in the pen doing a long sentence.
Adrian Plass – Fav Christian writer along with CS Lewis. ‘… can’t fix the roof, it’s a futile gesture’. Get it?
A Man Called Thursday – One of GK Chesterton’s bizarre stories. Fascinating.
Tom Wright, Richard Bauckham, Conrad Gempf – Theologians I like.
