Bedtime reading

After a 9-hour stretch working on a manuscript all day (I edit book manuscripts - sadly never anything too exciting!), I desperately needed something to chill out to as I snuggled under the duvet last night...
This book is a real eye-feast - it's beautifully produced and feels so lovely to hold. The journal pages are lavishly reproduced and there are family recipes and emails - as well as beautiful images.
By reading Amy's journal you become part of her life incredibly quickly, and even though you kind of know what's coming, it's a really fun read!
And when was the last time you picked up a book you could read cover to cover in an hour??!
It was just what I needed after a tedious day spent ploughing through a tome on educational assessment and evaluation...
In fact, that's what this book is - a perfect tonic offering escape for the mind and beauty for the eyes.
