We think it rather important, in times like these, to cling to the positives and look for the silver lining, however faint it may be. Even if it's more grey than silver. Whether it be the sunshine streaming through your kitchen window, the way that the quiet of outdoors enables you to hear the birds singing a little clearer, or the time that you have to finally do the things you've always wanted to do. Now's an excellent time to begin to learn a language, to whip out the paintbrushes and paint the likeness of Spring daffodils, and certainly, in our case, to finally tick off a few bucket list books.

Finding time to read in our normal, fast-paced lives can be difficult. It's far too easy to instead sit on the sofa with some Brooklyn 99 on in the background, scrolling through Instagram on your phone. Not that there's anything wrong with either of these things - we love an Instagram session. But it often takes place of something a little more enriching, like digging into a brilliant book.

Currently, social media is a little draining, so a lot of us are looking to be pulled away from the real world and drawn into somewhere a little more cheering. We thought we'd help you there, by highlighting a few of the best titles that we've got in stock every week. We're starting, today, with classics.

As the lengthy title of this post says, now is the perfect time to finally read the books you've always been meaning to read. Those books that you hear people gush over, the books deemed to be classics by those in the know. Also known as; the books we all pretend to have read but generally have not.
