Sadly I doubt this will be as heated a conversation as the last list.

The previous list was contentious because it was inaccurate and there were allegations of enthusiastic voting by some.

Sadly I have never been a fan of reading fiction so this list doesnt speak to me but a quick trip to the town center library indicates reading is not a popular pass time.
All the computer desks are full but all are on facebook

Don't agree with any of those. They are library books and free. You cannot always get books from the top ten so have to make do with the next best. My top ten choice would be; 1, any Road Dahl kid's book, 2, Conservation in the 21st Century by Teresa Green, 3, Haunted Hotel by Hugo Thirste, 3, Death at Beachy Head by Eileen Dover, 4, Modern Soldiering by Mark Tyme, 5, Post Orthopaedic Care by Tony Armstrong, 6, Life in Prison by Andy Shackles, 7, Accurate Weather Forecasting for Anglers by Michael Fish, and lastly 8, Learning to Count for Immigrants by Ben E. Fitz.
