6. If you were putting up to twelve books for browsing on a shelf in a peaceful cafe what would they be?

Some pretty picture books to look at:
a fabulous book of aerial photographs, Mexicolor.

Some reference works:
a decent dictionary (partly to go with the Scrabble set such a café should have), an atlas.

Some quick reads:
three short story anthologies from three different genres.

Some kids books:
a Dr Seuss collection, Oxford Book of Children's Poetry.

Some humour:
a collection from an amusing columnist, a New Scientist last word book, a Michael Leunig collection.
