    Good book recommendations

      We ran a competition recently over on our facebook page to give away ten copies of the very lovely 'dog who dared to dream' - a jolly good book for you to curl up with on the sofa this autumn! To enter we just asked our lovely facebook friends to tell us which good books we should read, because we all need inspiration from time to time.   The beauty is that now we have a lovely big list of good books we can all enjoy during this long old autumn and winter, so we thought we'd share them with you. Enjoy, and do let us know in the comments or on facebook which books you've read and which you've enjoyed...   Good book recommendations for poppy treffry (Thanks to Becky Kingston for this lovely Picture of her book collection!)   So, in no particular order, our 'Good Book' list, bought to you by the lovely folk of the Poppy Treffry facebook page:   Lynn Gibbins; The Plumberry School of Comfort Food - Cathy Bramley Louise Carter; Walking back to happiness - Lucy Dillon Jacqueline Plested; Mr Gandy's Grand Tour - Alan Titchmarsh Tracy Sankey; Lady of Hay - Barbara Erskine Linda Ogram; No time for goodbye - Linwood Barclay Siân James; The hollow treehouse - Enid Blyton Jamie Butt; Freya - Anthony Quinn Kathy Parker; lion the witch and the wardrobe Dawn Michelle Brodribb; the Grimm Legacy Karen Waterhouse; Midnight is a Lonely Place - Barbara Erskine Sam Sainty; The Night Circus - Erin Morgenstern Kate McCarthy; M.J.
