Gavin & Stacey: From Barry to Billericay by James Corden and Ruth Jones
Published September 3, 2009

Okay, perhaps this doesn’t really count as reading, but it is a book, and I started at one cover and got all the way to the end. This is more of a scrapbook with all kinds of snippets from each character. Nessa guides you through giving birth, and provides some letters to her former lovers. Smithy talks about beer and football - a lot. Gwen submits her application form for Dragon’s Den, whilst Bryn has a lot to say about technology and about Wales, and preferably the two together.
Obviously, you’ll only like this book if you’re a fan of the show, and if you are, there is attention to detail in here that will surprise you. There are pages from the guest book of Gavin and Stacey’s wedding itself. I watched that episode recently, and Smithy mentions that one person has signed it three times, and another has signed it twice. And so it is in the book. I love stuff like that.
