We also thought we’d throw something else into the mix for our December book discussion to accompany our annual mince pies and Prosecco!

How many times, after reading features such as The Guardian’s ‘The books that made me’, have you been tempted to fill in the answers to many of these questions yourself? So have a think about the following and see where the discussion takes us.

What is the book that changed your life?

What is the book you wish you’d written?

What book do you think is most overrated?

And, finally:

What is the book you’re most embarrassed or ashamed not to have read?
