FROM THE ED­I­TOR

Northern News - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

I’ve been hav­ing a sort out of my books lately.

There’s noth­ing bet­ter than snug­gling up with a good book in win­ter, so it’s good tim­ing.

Old books I’ve been keep­ing for ages and re­alised I would never read or should no longer pos­sess ones like 20,000 Leagues Un­der the Sea and The Horse Whis­perer were given to Hospice.

I’ve started a new pile which I’ll aim to get through while semi­hy­ber­nat­ing over these com­ing cooler months.

I’m so grate­ful that I en­joy read­ing. It’s such a great pas­time, be­ing able to es­cape into a vast ar­ray of dif­fer­ent worlds.

I started read­ing early - and still have a few books from my child­hood in­clud­ing The Wizard of Oz, Bad Jelly the Witch and The Ghosts who went to School - but dropped it for a few ridicu­lous years, be­fore pick­ing it up again in my 20s. Thank good­ness!

I might even join the li­brary, since it will soon be free to bor­row books in the Far North. Happy read­ing ev­ery­one.
