Gordon Brown's favorite books

Gordon Brown, the incoming Prime Minister of Great Britain, talked to Mariella Frostrup of the BBC's Radio 4 about his five all-time favorite books.

One title mentioned:
Britons: Forging the Nation, 1707-1837 by Linda Colley.
Read about the rest of Brown's list.

What does the list reveal about Brown? Something impressive, according to Ben Macintyre of the London Times; not so much, says Richard Lea at the Guardian books blog.
