A Book a Day for April – the full list

Those paying attention will know I’ve been posting a book a day for April on Facebook. I started each morning posting the first book that came into my head, so this is a snapshot of books that I like a lot, that occurred to me before coffee, in no particular order apart from the order I thought about them.

That said, it turned out to be a pretty good top 30 🙂

I’ll be keeping going, on my FB page, Twitter and G+ if anybody wants to keep watching, or maybe even start using the #abookaday hashtag for yourselves. I’d love to see your lists.
