And as many of us are reading even more avidly than ever due to the way we are living our lives at the moment, I don’t get the chance to do it so much. So I decided to organise some book talk with my mates in a new and occasional feature…..Talking to my friends about books…catchy title, I know. But that’s what it is.

Firstly, here’s my friend Deborah Stephenson, who’s enjoying some armchair travelling with No 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series by Alexander McCall Smith and The Good Thief’s Guide to..series by Chris Ewan
