worldbookday.com Celebrate World Book Day

There have been all manner of wonderful events to mark the occasion - people dressing up as their favourite characters at work, authors heading into schools to read sections of their favourite books to children, even a Where’s Wally fun run!

We wanted to mark the occasion in our own way and thought we’d find out ‘what’s your favourite book?’ We’ve done a poll of the office to get you started, leave a comment on the blog and tell us what’s your favourite book and why!

Jonny loves ‘Steve Jobs’ by Walter Isaacon – “It’s taken me a while to get through it but it’s a great read and one for the techies out there that prefer microchips to chick lits!”

Aarony’s fave is ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ by Harper Lee – “It might sound like a cliché but it’s the first book I read that really stuck with me and showed me just how powerful a well-written yarn can be!”

Becky is a huge fan of ‘Kafka on the Shore’ by Haruki Murakami – “I love the mystical world that Murakami creates, it tells the story of a powerful, troubled woman and everytime I read it I find something new!”

Lizzy loves ‘Thoery of Practice’ by Pierre Bourdieu – “This book answered loads of questions I had and gave me a better understanding of myself and the people around me.”

Tasha loves ‘Freedom’by Jonathan Franzen – “From the first page I was hooked. The characters are so well written that I genuinely missed them when I’d finished reading. Probably why I'm re-reading it at the moment!”

@all: What's your favourite book and why?
