As we enter 2022, who knows what lies ahead (what could possibly go wrong?!) but at least we can be certain of the steady stream of fabulous books which continue to be published and which currently form a teetering TBR pile beside my bed and probably yours. Books can explain, offer escape or knowledge, provide inspiration through beautiful prose, allow us adventures and take us on emotional journeys. There is a book for everybody at every time. With so much instability surrounding us, books give us the precious gifts of exercising our emotional muscles, increasing tolerance and understanding, and taking us to extraordinary places. I hope that this year brings you much reading pleasure and for the writers, much satisfaction in creating the words and using them to tell new and vibrant stories. Wishing everyone good health, peace and happiness for 2022.
