Reading list

On the below list you will find titles such as mega-popular "Life of Pi" by Yann Martel, Man-Booker prize winners as "Wolf Hall" by Hilary Mantel, Nobel Prize winners like Kazuo Ishiguro and his "The Buried Giant", thrillers like "Gone Girl" by Gillian Flynn, not well-known but brilliant "Alone in Berlin" by Hans Fallada and funny "Me Talk Pretty One Day" by David Sedaris, to name a few.
