Have a little you-time? Pick up a good book!

Being quarantined has spurred us on to put together a place that we can share book recommendations so here it is! We've put this list together to include books that our Team have enjoyed. Feel free to join in and send us your suggestions to add to this post.

There are various ways to get hold of your books - you can follow the regular route and order a physical copy of your book online from retailers including Waterstones, WHSmith or Amazon.

You also have the option of an eBook, which you can either purchase a reader for (an Amazon Kindle or Kobo reader) or use your smartphone or computer to read. With eBooks you also have the option of borrowing from your local library - to find out more about how to do this in Leicestershire click here or visit your Local Authority website if in a different area.

Our Team LOVE a good read - we even have a library in the office to share with each other. Here are some of our top picks...
