What a great read Jane, thank you. My father was a great reader, all his life, and thankfully instilled a love of reading into both my brother and me from a very early age. It was years before I realised how unusual he was!
Couldn’t agree more Jane, funnily my Ma used to feel guilty about “wasting time” reading, but as she got older she got the bug big time, and devoured books. We were always read to as young children, something not done nearly as much now I fear.
