Enjoying @libbypagewrites’ new novel, The 24-Hour Café. It’s the story of best friends Hannah and Mona, but so far I’m connecting with Hannah more, maybe because from the start it’s seen more from her point of view… #24HourCafe #amreading

Just rediscovered my Gumdrop books that my Grandpa gave me. I never realised that he lived in Amersham and that’s where the books were set! @samthebook, have you encountered them… I think I might need to collect the other 15 titles… @booksandink #ValBiro #Gumdrop #amreading

Just realised that by buying the new @philippullmanofficial from @booksandink, not only did I support a #indiebooksellers but I saved £2 (5 quid off instead of 3) than if I’d bought the #SecretCommonwealth from @waterstones! #shoplocal #loveyourlocal #amreading
