Our writers share their book-related wishes for 2015.
As the year draws to a close, most of us are in a reflective mood, looking back over the events of the past year while also wondering what 2015 has in store. Getting into the spirit of things, we asked our Reads writers, columnists and reviewers one question: When it comes to books, what is your wish for 2015?
I wish to see the release of omnibus volumes of the works of two of my favourite authors. Armistead Maupin has had two omnibus volumes of his Tales Of The City collection released (comprising the first six novels); a third volume containing the last three Tales novels would be wonderful to see.
And I’d like to see an omnibus volume (or perhaps three) of the late Sue Townsend’s work released.
The collected works would make it so much easier to cart around (especially for those who still prefer to read printed books as opposed to electrical gadgets!).
I also wish to see the end of GST on books. Books, in my view, are gateways to knowledge, and knowledge should never be taxed!
