Bibby Line Group Recommends…

Following another month of travelling to various Bibby Line Group locations, I have once more been overwhelmed by the eagerness with which everyone talks about their favourite book or author. The list below is a compilation of these recommendations. You might want to try one of them, or next month you might like to see your own suggestion on the list – just get in touch if so!

My own personal recommendation this month is Thomas Hardy’s classic novel Tess of the D’Urbervilles. It is a poetic and poignant story about the tragic downfall of the spirited but naive Tess, at the hands of the shocking double standards of Victorian society. For an introduction to the novel, try watching the BBC’s lavish adaptation of the tale, which started on Sunday 14th September on BBC1. See here for further details:

I’d also just like to bring your attention to the Reading Surgery I run. If you’d like some help with choosing your next read, or even buying a book for a book-loving friend/family member/child, just get in touch via email ( – I’m happy to talk!
