Books. Everyone loves them, right? Just look at all the people who sit on public transport with their noses buried in a book; mobile phones discarded at the bottom of their bags.

It’s out in the shops on 3rd November and you can pre-order a copy from Amazon or, if you don’t fancy paying a delivery fee, via The Book Depository.

I’ve already put a deposit down for a swimming pool, so please buy it.
