Familiarity is often a safe bet as is choosing a murder mystery book it does exactly what it says on the tin or in this case book. Familiarity of a genre keeps you within your comfort zone whilst at times easing you out speed as if Miss Marple turned down Afternoon tea.Familiarity can also mean a place you’ve visited in early August myself and my husband visited Whistable and my lovely friend Jane knew immediately I’d love a book called Murder on the Downs set in Whistable. I love crime books as much as I love Kent as that is where my grandparents on both sides used to live, so it is an area I know very well and it has a very special place in my heart.
2 Make time
Time is like a pocket essential, we all lead busy lives and allowing out minds to decamp while reading a book is an absolute must.
3 Find your reading spot
Your favourite spot might take a while to find but one spot I used to love was the library in a corner tucked away from the rest of the works with just me and a sea of discoveries in a book.We’d love a garden nook hidden away from the trials and tribulations of the day.
4 Wear what you like !
To feel relaxed you’ve got to feel comfortable in what you’re wearing unless your a naturist then you’ll be comfortable in your own skin.
5 Avoid popularity
Everyone and everything is jostling for attention and your hard earned cash for you to buy their book but popularity can breed contempt at times .People see it as the in thing to read that book , I mean just look at 50 shades of Grey ( charity shops are overrun with them )
