Make time for books

We know what it's like.

An ever-rising tide of information threatening to overwhelm you. Electronic buzz and chatter, tweets, posts, TXTs, calls, emails and a deluge of marketing messages everywhere you look. There is hardly time to think.

What we say is: shut out the noise and create some space. Turn off the gadgets, turn down the chatter and drop off the grid for an hour or so.

Make time for books.

You'll be amazed at the result. When you make time for books - real books - you create space to think, to process information and ideas, and there is good evidence that your body and mind respond to this to. It's the best relaxation there is.

Seek out your local independent bookshop. Discover a sanctuary of stories, ideas and knowledge, with friendly staff who can find you just the right book for you.
