Jojo Moyes's six favorite books

Jojo Moyes's new novel is The Girl You Left Behind.

One of her six favorite books, as told to The Week magazine:
Eyewitness to History edited by John Carey

This fascinating book gathers 300 firsthand accounts of significant events throughout history, from Pliny the Younger's take on the eruption of Mount Vesuvius to an early breast-removal operation described by the patient herself. It made me want to be a reporter.
Read about the other books on the list.
