Ever since I read this post and passed on the link to a couple of my friends who have fallen in love with John Banville, I have been repeatedly encountering mentions of the book The Top Ten at various blogs. As a friend of mine put it, it is amazing how you and your favourite author have similar, if not matching, tastes in books. Having nodded to that remark, I must also confess that my list is nowhere like Banville's.
The MetaxuCafe post on the topic has generated few comments with lists of reader top tens. I look forward to picking up a gem or two from there.
