I don’t know what I would do without books, I am quite obsessed with them and most of my dreams and aspirations are tied in to writing, publishing and reading. I dream of making the time to write one, I borrow more than I can ever possibly read from the library, I spend too much time on Thursdays and Fridays loitering in Pages and Pages, I dream of owning somewhere like Pages and Pages as it is run by a mother and son, both of whom are both old-fashioned in their love of books but innovative enough to keep their business up with the times. Speaking to Chris Page last week has inspired me to write down my impressions of books for future reference (seems sensible at this age!). And of course, what I write, I might as well share (mostly, there is a lot you should be glad to be missing). Just in case you’re in need of some bedtime reading.
