Bowie's READ poster from the American Library Association (1987)

Filmmaker Duncan Jones has started a book club of his father’s 100 favorite books and has invited everyone to join.

The first book has already been selected, Hawksmoor by Peter Ackroyd

Hawksmoor is a 1985 novel that takes place in the 18th and 20th centuries. From Wikipedia: It tells the parallel stories of Nicholas Dyer, who builds seven churches in 18th-century London for which he needs human sacrifices, and Nicholas Hawksmoor, detective in the 1980s, who investigates murders committed in the same churches.

Bowie’s list of 100 books to read can be found here. Some of these books may be harder to find than the others. I plan on seeing how many of them I can get through my local library. Also check out the The Bowie Book Club and it’s accompanying podcast. They already have a decent start on the Top 100.
