For The Love of Books

I am an addicted bookworm and even have a tattoo of a bookworm. I love losing myself in a bookshop or a library. However I only ever buy books on my Kindle as I now find it strange to carry a book or 2 as I used to when I can carry all in a small device.

A great book about bookshops, readers and writers

The Bookshop Book - Jen Campbell

I have just started reading this book. One of the passions in life for me is browsing bookshops so this is right up my street. Although I am a kindle owner and all or nearly all the books I read are digital, sometimes you cannot help yourself going into bookshops and physically picking up a book. 

An exceptional read

Napoleon: A Life - Andrew Roberts

What a book about one of the greatest minds and generals of the ninteenth centuary. I never realised how much of a reader and intellect he was. A lot of the reforms he made are still in use today in France. Just unfortunate that the European monarchs at the time thought he was an upstart.
