I manage the delivery of Reading Well across Wales, working with our key partners and publishers to make the Reading Well for dementia and mental health booklists available in every library authority in Wales.
I have always loved reading: I can remember the sense of achievement I felt on finishing my first Roald Dahl book unassisted and from then on I was constantly swept up in some imagined world I had discovered in a book. As an adult," reading groups":http://readinggroups.org/ have been a source of inspiring conversation (no one ever reads the same thing in the same way), friendships and confidence building, and now I'm a mum I'm rediscovering the joys of children's literature and leaving the library with more books than you can carry!
I have recently completed a degree in English literature and my love of reading is ever increasing. Reading enables you to discover new worlds; empower yourself with information; explore other countries, times, cultures and opinions. Reading is a huge part of my life and I feel privileged to work for an organisation striving to ensure that this pleasure is open to everyone.
