Book Recommendations

Majority of my recommendations come from Audiobooks. I have a deep love for narrative books whilst I’ve gone for a long hike or driving or even washing the dishes!

The odd times I do sit down to read a paperback I’m either in bed, on a bus/tram or by a river side which I canoed into stay for a few days (bushcraft).
