Take Part

Tell us about your most beloved & cherished books, what you’re reading right now, your favourite book from your childhood, the writing that makes you laugh out loud, gives you that ‘smile in the mind’, the pages that tug on those heartstrings, enlightening the senses, pondering the world’s mysteries and wondering... what will we read next.
