It’s been a strange year but it is summer (I feel like it was March last time I checked!).
I hope you will be taking a break.
We asked some of the CDL team and our social media community to share their book recommendations for summer.
We hope whatever your summer plans, you take a break, and enjoy some time with family and friends, with a good book to hand.
