LIKE our guest columnist I am passionate about books, and the printed word in general.

What better medium to reach out to inspire, challenge, inform and entertain so many people than through literature.

We do our bit to be a page turner ourselves, even if you are simply rushing through to find your favourite bit of the paper. Every snippet of news, from front page scandal to district diary is eagerly anticipated by someone, and very well read by thousands.
