My favourite hobby is reading. I love to carve time out of my day, every day, to read. It often comes at the cost of having a tidy house or getting a good night’s sleep. That’s just fine with me though. I just love to escape real life in a world of fiction. Best of all is when I combine it with a cup of tea. Sheer bliss.
I have a favourite genre, it is sometimes referred to a Chick-Lit. I am a bit of a soft touch when it comes to modern day romance. I really enjoy it when the character goes on a bit of a life adventure. Being based in London, I love books set in difference locations, for example Ireland, Cornwall, Yorkshire to name a few.
I truly believe that everyone should read what appeals to them. Reading should be form of escape. You need to get lost in the book, caught up in the fictional world. People have been writing books for centuries so that is reason enough to me as to why it should be a national pastime.
So my question to you is: are you a E-Reader fan? I have one and I am starting to enjoy using it. My first love will always be a paperback. There is nothing like opening a new book for the first time and breathing in the new book smell.
Now to the tea drining. Another part of my daytime reading ritual, juggling holding the book and drinking my tea is a not a problem! Breakfast tea or Builders is my favourite, but I am also partial to Acti-Labs Strip Tea. It is a great detox and there is nothing better than doing something you love and it being good for you at the same time.
Now if you will excuse me I have a good book I need to get back to!
