The president of Chile, Michelle Bachelet, is trying to encourage more of her citizenry to read books by giving boxes of as many as nine books to 400,000 poor families, according to The Economist. The big question, of course, is which nine books, exactly?

My 9 books:
1. Kane and Able (Jeffery Archer)
2. Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy
3. Selling to the VITO
4. Macbeth (William Shakespeare)
5. Shall we tell the president ? (Jeffery Archer)
6. Treasure Island (RLS)
7. Calvin and Hobbes: The essential collection
8. Asterix and Obelix in Spain
9. Right ho, Jeeves (P G Wodehouse)
