A Lifetime of Books but a 30-Year Hiatus in Between

Here's a list of novels, plays, poetry, short story collections, and non-fiction I have read over the years. Excluded are those I don't remember a thing about especially from my literature degree days. (Great Expectations, House of Mr Biswas, the Color Purple are back on my TBR list.) I had a thirty year reading hiatus but am glad to be back. I've even discovered audiobooks.
Favourite author: Ursula Le Guin
Favourite novel: The Left Hand of Darkness
Favourite novel when young: Pride and Prejudice
Favourite funny book: My Family and Other Animals
Favourite nonfiction: The Other Side of Silence: Voices from the Partition of India - Urvashi Butalia
Soon to add to this list (aka currently reading): Agnes Grey; Nuanua: Pacific Writing in English since 1980
