Shadrack22 - 05 Jan 2019 12:19:07 (#1 of 34)

One - The Handmaid’s Tale.

PostmodernToss - 05 Jan 2019 12:23:13 (#2 of 34)

Two for me too: Tombland and A Legacy of Spies.

In fairness, I wouldn’t touch most of that list anyway.

barkis - 05 Jan 2019 12:23:31 (#3 of 34)

I think I've read Sapiens, but it might be his other one.

thisonehasalittlehat - 05 Jan 2019 12:23:50 (#4 of 34)

Fifteen or sixteen. Mostly kids books.

Bromio - 05 Jan 2019 12:32:41 (#5 of 34)

Five. Nothing all that remarkable; the Harari books, the Atwood, something else I've just forgotten, and the Rebel Stories for Rebel Girls book (can't remember if they specified the first or the second... I'm going to take it anyway). Surprised Pullman's last wasn't on the list.

BuddhaPest - 05 Jan 2019 12:37:39 (#6 of 34)

Six.

MontyPeculiar - 05 Jan 2019 13:40:07 (#7 of 34)

Six, but only two this year - the top two.

thisonehasalittlehat - 05 Jan 2019 13:41:09 (#8 of 34)

It's a mystery to me sapiens had sold so well.

Arjuna - 05 Jan 2019 13:55:50 (#9 of 34)

Read them all

And I wrote a few of them

RosyLovelady - 05 Jan 2019 13:59:35 (#10 of 34)

I haven't read any of them and I don't care. MrRosy's reading Tombland.

TheVoiceOfReason - 05 Jan 2019 14:02:06 (#11 of 34)

I read the Not Talking To White People About Race one, and the Ten Maps that Explain the World one.

airynothing - 05 Jan 2019 14:05:03 (#12 of 34)

Six for me, but most of them I wouldn’t touch with someone else’s.

cozzer - 05 Jan 2019 14:22:46 (#13 of 34)

Two for me too: Tombland and A Legacy of Spies.

Come on, admit it, you read the Beano Annual 2019 too.

cozzer - 05 Jan 2019 14:24:03 (#14 of 34)

If you wanted to read all of them, would you have to read The Tattooist of Auschwitz in paperback and hardback?

darkhorse - 05 Jan 2019 14:28:24 (#15 of 34)

I've read Wonky Donkey dozens of times. The illustrator was my old uni flatmate, Katz from Bromley, so good for her if she's belatedly rolling in oodles of money (mind you, lost touch since the end of the 20th century).

I got it in 2012, long before the Scottish Granny viral video (if you don't know what I'm talking about, see : the internet).

Lawlsie - 05 Jan 2019 14:31:16 (#16 of 34)

Two. First HP and most recent Cormoran Strike

darkhorse - 05 Jan 2019 14:32:32 (#17 of 34)

I've also read a few of the kids' books (Brain Freeze was only £1 in National Book Week, no wonder it , Julian Clary's Bolds and Oi Goat sold a lot. You could buy them with a free £1 voucher given out to school pupils).

Also the Adam Kay "This is going to hurt". Oh, and Sapiens by Harari.

DoubleEntendre - 06 Jan 2019 09:01:44 (#18 of 34)

Five for me (mainly due to my love of American crime) but none I would actually recommend or even remember that much about.

TRaney - 06 Jan 2019 09:09:09 (#19 of 34)

3

Cordelia - 06 Jan 2019 09:10:23 (#20 of 34)

Two for me, well 1.5 as I’m still only halfway through the Michelle Obama. The other is the Neil Gaiman.
