I am going on holiday in a couple of months for two weeks. I'm planning on doing the usual relaxation, but I would like to read a couple of books. Firstly, let me emphasize - I don't read. I dislike reading books, but occasionally I take notions when I have some spare time. The books I have read: Animal Farm, 1984, Lord of the Flies, The Da Vinci Code. As you can see, not an exhaustive list! I would prefer to read literary classics, something that it would be shameful to go through life without ever reading. To Kill a Mocking Bird, Catch 22, and Fahrenheit 451 are books I've heard of and probably the first off the top of my head that I'd be more inclined to buy first. I don't have a clue what these books are about though. If you could recommend me one book, just one, out of every book you've ever read, what would it be? Please don't recommend something like Lord of the Rings, or Harry Potter. I do not have the patience to read something thicker than my wrist! P.S. I've dabbled recently with audiobooks - and I don't know if it is just my short attention span, but I find it too difficult to focus and process what is being said to me and I end up tuning out and thinking about other things! Audiobooks I have bought: "How to Win Friends and Influence People", "How To Argue And Win Every Time", "The Power of Now", "The Hobbit", "The God Delusion, and "Twilight".
