Reading is my ideal way to spend a lazy afternoon – curled up on the couch with a fuzzy blanket, a hot cup of tea, an animal companion or favourite human by my side, listening, perhaps, to the patter of rain on the windows… few other things have given me as much pleasure as a good book.

They’re are a huge part of my life, and should rightly be a part of this blog too. This page is dedicated to the brilliant books I’ve read, and countless hours I’ve spent ruminating on the philosophies they’ve imparted to me.
