What's your best loved book?

To celebrate Book Lover’s day, we asked you to name your #bestlovedbook, tell us how it got you hooked on reading, and share a photo of the copy on your bookshelf. Here are our Penguin mug-winning favourites


From the character who inspired you to change your life


To the childhood favourite that seemed to grow with you


The book that sparked new ways of thinking


Made reading feel like a (sometimes ill-advised) love affair


Inspired above-and-beyond devotion


Or introduced you to new best friends



Every book has a million stories. We love hearing yours.
Happy Book Lover's day.
