I love reading, I never used to as a kid, but then I went to University and despite doing a science degree, I found all my friends in the Arts and English depts. Their influence on me was profound enough to start a little flame deep inside of me and I am eternally grateful to them for this beautiful relationship I have with books and literature.
I go through phases when I don't feel inspired to read fiction and can only concentrate on a magazine or newspaper article and then I go through a gluttonous phase of never getting enough of reading fiction. This year I want to make a concerted effort to read more, both fiction and non fiction. I love poetry and children's books too, so there will of course be a place for them as I embark on Laura's great idea of "the year in books".
My first read is Donna Tartt's, The Little Friend which I am loving, it's a bit of a page turner and I am almost stalling on reading it as I don't want it to finish. Does that ever happen to you?
So, I hope to share my little year of books here on my blog and if you fancy joining in visit Laura's blog to find out more. In the mean time I'll leave with you of some of the images from my day on our seafront. Wasn't the sun delicious?
I hope you are all having a good weekend and that the sun has shone on you too
See you soon
