My pleasures in life? A good book and a nice cup of tea!
I have been a bookworm for as long as I can remember. I read in the bath, in bed, on the sofa, in trams, planes, trains and automobiles. I read when I'm supposed to be working, I read for pleasure when I'm supposed to be studying - in short I read whenever and wherever I can. My flat is full of books, scratching at the door waiting to be let out! I am very attached to some of my books, and re-read my favourites many, many times :-)
