There’s nothing quite like a good book. It can take you far away from the here and now, make you laugh your pants off or lead to some epic sobbing (you should have seen me at the end of Marley and Me – hot mess). Whether it’s curled up on a comfy chair with a blanket on a rainy Sunday, by the pool in the middle of summer, or on a transatlantic flight, a good book is always a good companion.
I’ve always been a bit of a bookworm. One of my favourite places to go as a child was the library, either at school, or in the community. I could never just check out one book at a time. I’d typically walk out of the library with a stack of books as tall as me. I am lucky to have parents who valued reading, and made it a priority from an early age. We used to read every night before bed – what great memories! I remember stumbling across new words and challenging myself to find out what they meant. This is probably why I love words so much now. I’ll save my list of favourite words for another post 🙂
I still can’t get on board with the whole e-reader trend. You can’t beat the feel of a book between your fingers. And I can’t use my Winnie the Pooh bookmark with an e-reader, so that just won’t do.

Reading another book – one of my most favourite things to do.
