Favourite Books from Before I Was Born

I was born in 1992. While I do pre-date some of my favourite books (in some cases by at least 20 years), there are a few which pre-date me.

I’ve been very lucky that the book has been just as good on the inside as the outside was, too. If you want some autumn-hued reading, then I’ve got some great ideas here for you.
