I know I bang on a lot about books, but really I can’t imagine a life without having a stack of them tucked away somewhere… They can fill a room with energy, wisdom and presence. The anticipation and promise, so many stories so little time…  Below are a handful of my favourite books. Not even a stack really. I encourage you to pick out one and commit its words to your reading stack. A happy day is a book day.
