It is that time of the month again folks – a new month and a fresh reading list! With it being beginning of June, it’s time to bring out the summer reading list! What are you going to be reading this month? Do you spend a summer holiday indulging in a lighter read, or hit the books hard?

Sunday Summary – 8th April 2018

Happy Sunday! How has everyone’s week been? Mine has been pretty good overall! It got off to the best start with a bank holiday too – what a shame! Okay, a little optimistic perhaps!
