Read me!

One of our favourite writers – Philip Pullman – once said that you should to ‘Read like a butterfly, write like a bee.’ So we’ve putting together a list of historical books to read. If you have got a book you would like use to add to this list, email readme@writebackintime.co.uk saying why you like the book and we will add it to our growing list of titles. Remember – the book has got to be about history (or the future) – sorry but that means no J.K. Rowling, Roald Dahl or Jacqueline Wilson. Michael Morpurgo can come, but only if he’s on his Warhorse.
