'The experience of reading a wonderful book.'

19 May 2014

‘Television is a fine medium and I love cinema more than most. I listen to music all the time and have been known to glance at the web too, but for me nothing quite compares to that moment when you read some marks on the page and think "yes, I know exactly what you mean".

With technology tapping us on our shoulder, it has become harder and harder to find the time and concentration to sit alone with a book, and it's not surprising that so many men have lost the habit of reading or never acquired it in the first place. But I passionately believe that nothing is quite as immersive, affecting or exciting as the experience of reading a wonderful book.'
