Reading

I loved reading when I was at school and during my young adult years. I lost the habit later and only came back to reading a few years ago mostly due to the discipline of a Facebook Reading Group.

Here I started reading books that I would never have read and in the space of the month I had to read them in. I’ve met some great people there too which is an added bonus.

Since retiring I’ve had more time on my hands so more time to read. The best reading moments have been during my travels and while cruising.
