1 Solo: A James Bond Novel By William Boyd
The latest "Bond" Novel and the main character is James bond but for me one who thinks too much and sadly is not the Bond I remember. That said, it is a good read. Harper, £18.99. Signed.
2 Afterliff By John Lloyd and Jon Canter
Ruswarp: To deliberately write a word unclearly when you don't know how to spell it. These definitions based on place names are always funny and often profound. Faber and Faber, £9.99.
3 Under a Mackerel Sky By Rick Stein
From the entrepreneurial days of his mobile disco to his restaurant chain, Rick charts his journey in a way that is both wry and perceptive; engaging and witty. Ebury, £20. Signed.
4 Great Designs
Mark Boulton said to push the boundaries, you need to know where the edges are. They're in this book. DK, £20.
5 A Lighter Way to Bake By Lorraine Pascale
If, like Mel and Sue, you've indulged but can't give up cake, this may help. HarperCollins, £20. Signed.
6 One Summer: America 1927 By Bill Bryson
A hugely entertaining story of brawling adventure, reckless optimism and delirious energy, with a cast of unforgettable and eccentric characters. Doubleday, £20. Signed.
7 Bonkers: My Life in Laughs By Jennifer Saunders
From Comic Strip to Comic Relief, via Bolly-swilling Edina in Ab Fab and her takes on Madonna and Mamma Mia, her characters are household names. But it's Jennifer herself who has a place in all our hearts. Viking, £20. Signed.
8 Eat – The Little Book of Fast Food By Nigel Slater
This book is exactly that – small and full of food that is fast to cook. You could say this is a contradiction of Nigel's style but the results are very tasty. Fourth Estate, £26. Signed.
9 Paul Hollywood's Pies and Puds
The latest from Mary Berry's sidekick is a cracker and perfect now the weather has changed. Great step-by-step pictures help to create some stunning finishes to everyday meals. Bloomsbury, £20.
10 The Empress Dowager Cixi By Jung Chang
The world described here, in fascinating detail, seems almost unbelievable in its extraordinary mixture of the very old and the very new – and of the most important woman in Chinese history. Jonathan Cape, £20. Signed.
Student Brain Food: Eat Well, Study Better By Lauren Lucien
Information on cupboard essentials, shopping on a budget, preparing commonly used vegetables, food hygiene and kitchen safety. Essays and exams are all very well, but at university keeping healthy and full is as important; you can't concentrate on an empty stomach. Palgrave Macmillan, £7.99.
