4. Least favourite book by favorite author.

Richard Adams is the author of one of my favourite books of all time, Watership Down.  He also wrote the Plague Dogs, which I really enjoyed.  However, the third of Richard Adams books that I read was 'Shardik', and I just couldn't get into it.

I'm not entirely sure why; it's about a bear (Shardik), and the only discernable difference between Shardik and the first two books I read, was that they were written from the animals' point of view, whereas Shardik is written from the human's point of view

Maybe that's it, I'm really not sure.  All I know is that is the one book of Richard Adams that I read and never finished.
5. Doesn't belong to me.

Mr D has some great books on space and the solar system.
Although they're not mine, I've read most of them at least once, and often go back to them.  I've bought a few of my own, but mine tend to be the pictorial 'coffee table' kinds of space books.  Mr D's ones are more scientific!
