A few books on my shelf, books that make me want to go outdoors. Mostly memoir, all non-fiction. Breaking out of the box, embracing solitude, and seeing more. So many things have been shown so to me on these banks, so much light has illumined me by reflection here where the water comes down, that I can hardly believe that this grace never flags, that the pouring from ever-renewable sources is endless, impartial, and free. Solitude its own reward!

Founder of the innovative Travel Bookshop that formed the setting for the movie Notting Hill, Sarah Anderson has written several travel books. At the age of 10, Anderson's arm was amputated as a result of a rare but virulent strain of cancer. Published this month, Halfway to Venus dwells upon the author's experience as a single-armed independent traveller, reflecting on other famous amputees and their prosthetic limbs in life and literature. I've realised that there's rather a heavy bias towards American writers - but whatever their origins they're all superb. The contemporary writer whose writings about the wild I most admire. Robert Macfarlane stuck to Britain for this exploration and the way he weaves literature he lectures in English at Cambridge into his ramblings is seductive; he shows us that wilderness needn't be on an epic scale but can be found almost everywhere we care to look.

    I love urbane social comedies and absurd novels about office work and many kinds of fiction set mostly indoors and in town.
