“I think reading is essential to our mental and physical health – it certainly has been so for me. It stimulates the imagination and takes us into worlds other than the one we experience (whether in our reality or a made-up one), allows us to live through characters and experience journeys that bring happiness and fulfilment, helping us to function better in our relationships with other people and the world. Reading helps to destress and relax and just makes, even for a little while, things seem better. “
