One of my favourite places in London to go to explore is Notting Hill. From the bustling shops and cafés on the high street, to the pastel coloured houses tucked behind them. My imagination wonders as I shoot the streets with my camera, and I’m instantly inspired to create.
In Notting Hill, there is a bookshop I cherish. I love visiting it from time to time, and always have a field day browsing the many books they have in their collection. I love reading, as it allows me to learn about new things, and know the stories of different people and places. On this day I bought the latest title by Sophie Kinsella, an author I read avidly as a teenager. I remember every time I would buy her books, I would find the nearest comfortable spot to relax and have a read of the first few chapters, as I was too excited and couldn’t wait to get home. I can read for hours without even noticing, so I’ll always bring along some nibbles in case I get hungry. Light & Free Strawberry Sensation is my new favourite to snack on in between meals. On this day, the spot was a step in front of one of the pastel coloured houses. The sunset also set the mood as I delved in to the story, and as usual, Kinsella left me with a feeling of happiness after I laughed throughout the first few chapters.
~ The Reading Tag ~
Here’s a Tag I found, that I though to share!
1. Do you have a certain place for reading?
No, I can read anywhere!
2. Bookmark or a random piece of paper?
Random piece of paper, I could even use a tissue or random receipt!
3. Can you stop reading anytime you want or do have to stop at a certain page, chapter,part etc.?
I have to stop at the end of the chapter, or at the least a paragraph. I like to be able to pick up where I left off with ease.
4. Do you eat or drink while reading?
I love having a snack when I’m out and about reading. Light & Free* Strawberry Sensation is always a good choice!
5. Can you read while listening to music/watching tv?
I can read while listening to music. I prefer classical music as it’s calming and relaxing to read to.

One book at a time, definitely.
7. Reading out loud or silently in your head?
Silently in my head!
8. Do you read ahead or skip pages?
No, I like to absorb every word and page.
9. Breaking the spine or keeping it new?
I like to keep it looking new, just in case I want to pass it on as gift.
