Mr Sleight’s Shelfie

Categories: Other,

Mr Sleight (history teacher) was our Shelfie special guest speaker this week. His books included two history books, one on the Titanic and one about World War I. From childhood he chose ‘The Wishing Chair’ by Enid Blyton, and like several past Shelfie guests, he chose ‘Lord of the Rings’ by J R R Tolkien as one of his favourite ever books.

The complete list was;

  • The Wishing Chair, by Enid Blyton
  • Jurassic Park, by Michael Crichton
  • Lord of the Rings, by J R R Tolkien
  • Northern Lights, by Philip Pullman
  • The Chronicles of Narnia, by C S Lewis
  • Sleepwalker; how Europe went to war in 1913, by Christopher Clark
  • Titanic; an illustrated history, by Donald Lynch
