Everyone has a favourite book (magazine, poem, article etc.), right ? A book that influenced you, changed you, uplifted you, inspired you or just made you think or laugh. Bring the book (magazine, poem, article, whatever it is) and read us a line, paragraph or page from it and lets see whether others can get something from it too.

Looking forward to seeing you all next Thursday !
