On average, I read about one book a month. I only usually read a chapter or two when I go to bed and that's it. When I go on holiday though, it's a different matter. It's lovely to sit and read a few chapters when I'm on the beach, or when I'm alone when the rest of the family have gone fishing for an hour or two.
Whilst I was on holiday this year, I read the Call The Midwife trilogy.
I've watched every episode of the series which is based on the books and thoroughly enjoyed them and I can now say that I've enjoyed the books too. The series is very true to the books, I recognised the different episodes I'd seen as I read each chapter, but it didn't spoil it for me.
I can recommend these books whether or not you've seen the programme. I've passed them on to my mum to read now, she's never watched Call The Midwife but I'm sure she'll enjoy them too.
