January is the perfect time to sit by the fire and enjoy a good book!
I know it's a bit late but...….Happy New Year everyone. I always find January cold and grey and a bit of a let down after all the hustle and bustle of Christmas. One way I love to cheer myself up is to grab a hot drink and snuggle on the sofa with a good book. I get totally involved with the characters, imagine the settings and for a while I'm enjoying a different reality! With the weather we are being threatened with in the next week or so it seems like a pretty good way to spend my time! To see my Top 5 recommendations for Januaryread all about them here! I promise you that there isn't a new year new you book to be found! Enjoy your precious reading time! Namaste Janie S xxx Founder Savvy 'n' Sassy
