Brilliant Bookish Buys: Ed 3 – Literary Colouring Books

There has been a lot of talk lately about the mindful act of colouring in and a whole industry has sprung up around colouring books for adults. I personally love colouring in, it was one of my favourite things to do with my children when they were small. Like reading and crosswords, this small act of concentration allows you to relax and lose yourself. So with that in mind, this edition is literary themed colouring books and some of them are wonderful!

Lots of the books we’ve seen so far are full of flowers, mandalas and geometric patterns, but we thought we’d have a look for some bookish ones, and there are plenty out there!
