WHAT TO READ?

Reading is a skill we are blessed to learn as a child and don’t utilise enough as an adult. It’s easy to forget the joy a great book can bring as a stress reliever and comfort. Amazon (the giant behind the Kindle) published a 100 Books to Read in a Lifetime list, and here are some of our favourites to start you off in your new reading nook!
