As many of you know, I am a reading addict. I absolutely devour books and often have a few on the go at once. It's absolute escapism for me and relaxes me no matter what time of day.

I’ve had a fab summer this year. I’ve been very sure to make time for myself and to relish the 6 weeks holiday my boyfriend has from teaching. I’ve had two weeks completely without work (even switching off emails!) and lots of lovely days out.
I thought I’d use this blog at the inevitable “Back to School” time of year to reflect on a summer well spent.
