The Hat of Victor Noir. Can't believe it's almost 20 years since I bought this based on its cover. It was an excellent punt. I might re-read ahead of going to Paris.

Haruki Murakami

Year after year, bookies put their bets on Japanese author Haruki Murakami winning the Nobel Prize in Literature. Instead, the Swedish Academy announced this morning that the honor had gone to French author Patrick Modiano.

My favourite Flannery O'Connor book

Our Book Group just Read Flannery O'connor's first novel, Wise Blood. It is a doozy. Grotesque, eccentric, and filled with interesting characters.

I love Wes Anderson. He seems to process the world in a way I understand. This book gives a peep inside his mind. Sort of.

Fishpond NZ, The Wes Anderson Collection by Wes Anderson Matt Zoller Seitz. Buy Books online: The Wes Anderson Collection, ISBN Wes Anderson Matt Zoller Seitz

I was deeply moved by this book. It deserves to be widely read.

What do people read on the London underground?  Birdsong by Sebastian Faulks: Aisling McGuiness: "I haven’t actually got that far into it but as far as I’m aware, it’s about World War I. It’s a bit slow to begin with, so I’m hoping it picks up. I think a lot of people are reading more from Kindles and iPads than actual books, which I think is quite sad. I really like the old classics."
