If, like me, you love to read, and yet whenever anyones asks you what you want for Christmas or birthday and you say ‘A book or book voucher’, their face crumples up and they wander off mumbling, ‘I can’t get them that! It’s such a boring present.’, well this article is for you. But bear in mind, what we would really like is the book we mentioned or a book voucher – REALLY! We love books! If you are not convinced, then get us one of the following: Oh and thanks…………:(
