Book Week Scotland 2014

Scottish Book Trust: vote for your favourite Scottish book

The Scottish Book Trust is looking for people’s favourite Scottish novel of the past 50 years. If you want to vote you can do so here.

I must admit that the list of books to choose from is quite different from any list which I would compile but then, I’ve read hardly any of the titles, although I have read different books by a lot of the authors.

It’s news to me that some of the authors are even seen as being Scottish. Apparently Michel Faber lives in Scotland but was born in the Netherlands, so the Dutch see him as being Dutch although he doesn’t write in Dutch and the Australians also claim him as he has lived there in the past.
