What I read in 2021

Reading is my absolute favourite thing to do. Whenever I have any spare time, I read. I’d much rather read than watch TV or spend time on the internet. Unfortunately, life gets in the way and I don’t spend as much time reading as I would like, but I certainly read every day, even if it is only for a few minutes some days. A book usually takes me seven to 10 days to read, but I’ve had books I’ve read in three...

What I read in 2020

Reading is my absolute favourite thing to do. I read whenever I can and will always prioritise it over TV or social media. If I could, I would sit and read all day, every day, with just the occasional run or walk thrown in. But unfortunately life has a way of stopping me – with work and family and chores to deal with.

I love reading more than anything else. It is certainly right up there with running. If you left me alone for a month, I wouldn’t switch the TV on, but I would get through a lot of books and would be very happy. I’d much rather read a book than spend time on social media or read a magazine (although I do those things too). For me, reading is escapism. I read books because I love them, not because I want to learn or better...

What I read in 2017

I love nothing more than reading. It’s how I unwind and escape from the frustrations and boredom of everyday life. Left to my own devices, I wouldn’t need a TV and you wouldn’t catch me watching videos online. I’d much rather read a book than a blogpost or magazine or look at social media (although I do those things a lot too). I read every night before I go to sleep and every lunchtime when the kids...
