I heard a marvellous quote recently, that a reading a book is akin to borrowing someone else’s mind.
It was inspiring to see Patrick Collison’s bookshelf and so started this limited version of my own.
Space, James Michener – reads like a thriller charting the early space exploration
Wild Swans, Jung Chang – a brave, moving and intense book to learn from
Swallows & Amazons, Arthur Ransome – when the world was simpler, if not kinder
The Lost Pianos of Siberia, Sophia Roberts – an inspiring portrait of historical and contemporary EurAsia
Fazisi, Skip Novak – amazing tail of valour, sailing with a Russian yacht
