So I’m reading a book. Actually, since last writing about books here I’ve gone through around twenty, but this one seems fitting for the blog. I’d never heard of Sophie Sabbage before this year, nor her first book about coming to terms with a terminal cancer diagnoses. Not to be flippant but I have alwaysContinue reading “Lifeshocks”
