Oh I wish I could join in but that is just too hard a question...not because I have loads of music..far from it, but I am useless with music and well, you would probably all laugh at my choices :)

The CD I am loving at the minute is Duffy, is it Rockferry..see, told you I was bobbins :)

My all time favourite book is Wild Swans....

But if I was on a desert Island I think I would read anything ;-)!!!!

Sorry guys, I didnt follow the rules..haha...but just wanted to join in ;-)!!

oh good grief, what a choice!

i shall need plenty of time to contemplate all those! So hard to narrow those categories down but I will get to it over the weekend...

(did love Wild Swans too though, Scotsmist - one of the many reasons for my passion for China, more of that another day!)
