I am not impossible to buy for!

Three CDs complied by the British Library from their archives. Writers, poets and childrens' authors reading their own works. Many date back to the early days of recording. Included are Tennyson, Joyce, Dahl, Tolkien, Milne, Briggs, Pullman, Yeats, Cummings, Woolf, Wells and Forster.
Some of the recordings are the last known of the particular writer and included are gems such as Robert Browning forgetting the words to his own poem. Christmas is nearly here folks! (The catalogue also has a rather nifty gift section.)
