reading list

I've been doing quite a bit of reading in preparation for The Trip. Thought it might be worthwhile including the books I've read, in case anyone else is looking for ideas. I can't remember them all off the top of my head, so I'll come back and add to the list from time to time. I may even try to organise the list into some sort of order ...
