Here, there and everywhere
‘We may sit in our library and yet be in all quarters of the earth’
A bibliophile is a person who collects or has a great love of books. I definitely am.
I was so pleased to rediscover a few of the books I used to love to read as a child in a second hand shop whilst on holiday a few years ago. I used to love the Magic Faraway Tree and all of the folks that lived in it and the adventures they went on. I was so inspired that I even used to write my own stories about other lands that they might have visited. This ability to be able to be transported to another place or having my imagination fired when reading; whether it is just a recipe, a scene in a book or an idea I want to develop is something that has stuck by me throughout my life and I am really grateful.
