Thanks everyone for suggestions, I have made more edits to the original list.
I was hoping to have finished What I Talk About When I Talk About Running by Haruki Murakami before today, so I could do a review and claim my tickboxes. It was written originally in Japanese, so ticks box 8; is a memoir (25) and also a non-fiction book (13). I’m not happy that item 25 also inevitably fulfills item 13, though. Also, it was recommended by my dad, so I can’t quite tick 16 (recommended by a friend) or 20 (loved by my mum).
It’s about running.
