“ I have always loved stories, and as a child I read voraciously, as did my family. When I invited a school friend to stay during the summer holidays, she later admitted to finding us very peculiar because we read our books over breakfast. No conversation, just the rustling of pages and the crunch of our Cornflakes. ”
