Reading - Reading is a huge passion of mine! This could be reading to learn more about education and latest research or it could be delving into a good story to escape and enter the world of imagination. My favourite time to read is during the holidays where I can truly relax, hopefully in the sunshine, and lose myself. I love reading historical novels, based around people that lived a long time ago. I love reading about the Tudors and my favourite author is Philippa Gregory. I also love reading stories to my children and we read as a family every night before bed. We are currently working our way through the Harry Potter series - loving every magical moment!

Reading - I love stories of adventure, that take you to different environments or countries. Call of the Wild was a book I have re-read recently as it was one of my favourites as a child. I usually read myself off to sleep with a Poldark novel as I have the box set to get through! Although fiction they also give you an idea what it was like to live when mining was at the forefront for Cornwall. I have always read to my children and grandchildren and the love of books stays with them. Books just widen your understanding of the world and I can't imagine my life without them.

Reading - I love reading books. At the moment I am enjoying reading books which teach me about being a good Mummy to my little boy. Books help me to make good choices and understand what is the right thing to do to keep my baby happy and well.

Reading - I love sharing stories with my son and we still read together most nights even though he is getting bigger and bigger! He enjoys funny books by Dav Pilkey. I prefer to read autobiographies and love sitting in the garden in the sunshine with a good book.

Reading - I love reading EVERYWHERE ... but especially in my garden or in bed just before I go to sleep. I love to read mystery books, the ones that keep me page turning. My favourite author is Agatha Christie who was dyslexic. She uses amazingly juicy language and weaves gripping plots that keep my attention and make it almost impossible stop reading and put the book down. A cup of hot chocolate, a cheeky biscuit, put my feet up and a good book ... just magic .

Reading - I enjoy reading the Morganville vampire series by Rachel Caine - the storyline grabbed me from the start and I found the books very hard to put down - always wanting to know what was going to happen - the twist in the story you didn't expect keeps it interesting.
