Today’s blog prompt: What’s your favourite reading material? Like the kind of favourite that you would take it to read if you had to cut off the rest of the world for years and years?

I love to read, doesn't always mean I've got a book on the go but that's because when I do have I don't want to put it down and nothing else gets done. My mother was the chief librarian at our local library in South Africa and I used to love going in when she had a book exchange, so many new books to look through and choose from. In those days I used to read different types of books, whatever took my fancy. However, since having children, I have to admit that I'm a feel good chic lit lover! They're quick and easy to read and 9 times out of 10 I'll finish it with a smile on my face.
Favourite authors at the moment include : Cathy Kelly, Jill Mansell, Marian Keyes, Katie Fford,
Sheila O'Flannigan, Cecilia Ahern, Patricia Scanlan and Catherine Alliott. Colin Forbes is another author I enjoy - don't think I could include him in the chic lit category though :)
Other books I might want to have if I were cut off from the rest of the world would be my photography books - so long as I had my camera with me as well.
What books would you have?
