Many people will tell you that they haven’t picked up a book since school.
The curriculum requires kids to read heavy classics, and usually Shakespeare, too. For obvious reasons, these aren’t to everyone’s tastes. These one-off experiences can be enough to put you off for life. But, you shouldn’t let them.
Coming to reading later in life can be hugely rewarding. It’s the perfect way to fill your time. And, who doesn’t like to return to learning during their later years?
One thing’s for sure; books have plenty to teach. To kick start a love you can cling to, find your bookish niche.
But, how do you go about it?
Ever since I became a parent, I appreciate the odd spare moment I get to unwind around the home. Those moments are precious I can tell you! To relax and unwind I love to read. I can read anywhere. The bedroom , living room, bathroom and garden. Even the kitchen if I’m reading a magazine. Ultimately it’s the living room on the comfy sofa with a hot chocolate at this time of year.
In the Summer I find a shady spot in the garden or under the parasol to do my reading. Rattan Direct have some lovely garden furniture to unwind in the garden. Next Year when we move house I want to treat us to new garden furniture.
I was contacted by the lovely people at WILF Books asking if they could guest post on my blog to let all you all know about their new sharing-based children’s book delivery service.
Now you all know how much I love books so I’m very happy to help. I think it’s a fantastic idea and I’m very delighted to spread the word of this service that they are offering.
