Book Swap December 2020

I’ve decided that this month’s Bring Back Paper activity just has to be a book swap. It’s been quite the year, hasn’t it? And I can’t think of a better way to end it than by slowing down, curling up with a book and escaping to another world for a while!  I like the book …

Reading Is My Escape

Reading is my escape. It has been for as long as I can really remember. OK, so ‘escape’ might lead you to think that I have things that I need to escape from, but that’s rarely been the case. I had a good childhood, I wasn’t seeking solace in my books. But I was disappearing …
