Carol Turner, from Bibby Distribution in Liverpool, recommends “some classic science fiction: H.G. Wells, Jules Verne, John Wyndham. It’s always interesting to see how close (or not) their views of the future were.  I recently re-read some John Wyndham books: Trouble with Lichen, Chocky, Day of the Triffids, The Kraken Wakes.  On re-reading I was surprised at how political they were – but they’re still very good.”


Bill Chapman, from Costcutter in York, shares his favourite read with us: “The book is titled Golden Apples and written by a gentleman called Bill Cullen. His book takes you through his life when he started work selling apples, up until he became a very successful businessman. I have read it many times and would recommend that anyone in our business should read it too. Everyone who reads it will, by the end, appreciate who actually pays their wages!”
