R for Reading

The Z to A of Life

Monday, 27 February 2023 - 31 minutes

It's World Book Day on 2nd March and we're excited to be joined by fellow author, Elise Downing, to talk about her book Coasting and the benefits of reading.

Elise set off on a journey to circumnavigate the coastline of the UK, running over 5,000 miles. Coasting tells her story or sheer determination and mindset to complete this epic advanture.

As well as reading amazing stories about incredible people, reading has so many benefits, It exercises your brain, improves concentration and ability to focus. It can improve your literacy, vocablary, and general knowledge and reduce stress.

If you'd like to read some great books by independent authors, visit Elise's website: www.elisedowning.com and our store on the Future Toolbox website.
