As part of an upcoming project we’re asking customers, friends, families, mild acquaintances and complete strangers for their favourite British novels, plays and poems. The response on Twitter has already led to early nominations for such well regarded literary classics as Swallows and Amazons and Jane Eyre.
But do you agree? Maybe you prefer fantasy classics such as Alice’s adventures in Wonderland or the Baggins’ quests in Middle Earth. Perhaps you’re partial to the period detail of Dickens or a spot of Elizabethan poetry. Maybe you adore the page-turners of Colin Dexter and Val McDermid. Whatever your opinion we’d love to hear it.
You can either post your nomination in the comments section below or send a more detailed submission to firstname.lastname@example.org. We might also publish our favourite entries as separate blog posts to showcase your literary choices and to encourage debate. We’ll reveal more detail about the project in the next few weeks but in the meantime we thought it might be fun to see what you like to read.
