A book of personal anecdotes and tales from former president SR Nathan's front-row view of history is one of Singapore's most popular books.

50 Stories From My Life topped a list of 10 readers' picks in the English-language adult category of the Popular Readers' Choice Awards this year, organised by bookstore chain Popular.

The awards are meant to recognise local writing; to qualify, authors must be residing in Singapore when their books are published and the books must have made it to the Popular best-seller list.

Other top-three books in the children's and Chinese categories were a book in husband and wife team AJ Low's Sherlock Sam series and the Chinese-language graphic-novel version of the Jack Neo movie Ah Boys To Men.
