On liberty

by John Stuart Mill

Read this book every year - preferably around Christmas.

The Clicking of Cuthbert

by Pelham Grenville Wodehouse

Yes, one of the 100% gold-starred classics.

The Mystery Queen

by Fergus Hume

This is the sort of Edwardian spine-chiller that Bertie Wooster liked to read before bedtime. In this long-vanished world, men are men, gals are doughty fiancees, lords are murdered, secretaries are suspect and probably pale, aviation is in its infancy, and little old ladies living near the North York Moors are . . . . well, the less said the better.

Very innocent, and entertaining.

The Bishop's Secret

by Fergus Hume

This was an amiable and efficient moderate crime/mystery puzzler, which throws knowing glances at Trollope. Altogether good clean fun. I'll be reading more of Mr Hume, at bedtime . . .
