Cherishing Your Cocoon: Books to Inspire You

The word ‘cocooning’ is everywhere! While it may seem like quite a restrictive term at the moment, try to think of your cocoon, your home, as a cosy retreat. Remember the caterpillar who emerges from its silky cocoon as a beautiful butterfly.

As we are spending more time in our homes, cabin fever can begin to set in. You may find  yourself looking for some words of comfort,  words of encouragement or simply a little escape from daily news broadcasts. Now is a better time than ever to immerse yourself in a good book.
