I thought it would be a bit of fun (but mainly because I’m a nosey so and so) to ask my lovely co workers at Millar West to tell us what their favourite book of all time is and why. I could have gone much deeper and all Freudian on them and asked how their chosen book relates to them personally or on a deeper level but that would have been just a tad too much hard work….(and judging by their choices a little weird)
So you can make your own deductions about their choices! …..I’m lucky to have at least been given book names from this busy, secretive lot, so will stop right there. Gently does it and all that.
Tony Millar – Managing Director
Casino Royale by Ian Fleming
‘This was the first James Bond novel that I read as an adolescent….thrilling!”
Lux stool by Nomique (Get inventive! This stool could be used as a ottoman style coffee table)
Mark Veogeli – Sales Manager
The Dan Brown collection
“Thought provoking and mysterious these books are my all time favourite”

Gary Honey – Sales Executive
The Hobbit & Phil Tufnells Autobiography (Where Am I?)
“Phil Tufnell’s Autobiography is hilarious, I really enjoyed reading this, and The Hobbit because its the only fiction book that I have ever read!”
Gary trying really hard not to fall asleep….
Karl Smith – Sales Executive
The Eye of the World & The Great Hunt by Robert Jordan
‘The books I have liked to read the most are The Wheel of Time Series (14 Books and 1 prequel) The reason being is that they are easy reading”
These still look 1000 times harder to read than Paul’s choice below……..

Jay Williamson – Sales Executive
Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin
(We couldn’t find any GOT books so Lord of The Rings will have to do! They are basically the same thing right?)
“Game of Thrones has as all the best characteristics from the TV series with additional characters and differing story lines. I only have them on Kindle though sorry!”
Jay is our youngest staff member so we will forgive him for not owning an actual book just a digital one!

Paul Kettley – Transport Manager
Peter & Jane by Ladybird Books
“Peter and Jane and the reasoning behind this is because it had very big letters!!!”
(I’m guessing and hoping that Paul’s choice was not a recent one then!?)
Tracy Lawrence – Office Manager
Charlie and the Chocolate factory by Roald Dahl
“I was 7, it was the first book I read by myself and I loved it so much I cried when I finished it!!”

Michaela Dawdry – Admin/Accounts
LEAP by Geva Mentor
“I read this book on the day it was released. Geva Mentor is GK for England netball team. She played her first senior England game at only 14. This book is truly inspirational following her journey through clubs, trials and England. As a netball mum myself (national Prem league girl 😊) , I loved the sections about her Mum and the support she gave and the travelling involved! I dare anyone not to be inspired by her dedication.”
(Thank you Michaela for your great reason for loving this book!)
Hep coffee table by Orangebox
Becky Chilton – Marketing
The Enchanted Wood by Enid Blyton
“This must have been the first big book I read as a child. I can remember reading this and experiencing for the first time that feeling of loosing yourself totally in a magical world unlike our own……Amazing”
& The Twits by Roald Dahl
” Humorous and shocking in equal measures to a 7 year old. I’m not looking into this too much but there may be a hidden message with this book and how I feel about my co workers (sometimes that is!)”
Did we say “The Millar West favourite CHILDRENS book?” No I didn’t think so either!

To sum up this short but sweet little blog post, without a doubt the most influential book has to go to………
