Emily...overly fond of the ellipsis...and top ten lists...submit yours @ A87824361...

1. The Time Traveler's Wife, by Audrey Niffenegger
2. The Poems of Norman MacCaig, by Norman MacCaig
3. Atonement, by Ian McEwan
4. Persuasion, by Jane Austen
5. One Day, by David Nicholls

Thought I would update the old list (in no particular order)...never did reach no. 10. And I know 6 & 7 are technically technical books on jewellery design, but they're the ones I go back too, my most dog-eared, the ones with post-it notes littering their pages and the ones I look at on my bookshelves and make me happy.

Hope you're well!
