Reading is a huge part of what we do. It’s easily our biggest hobby and something we devote a lot of time to! But, what do we do when we’re not reading?
Wanting to create your own stories normally comes as a byproduct of reading great ones. I’ve been writing since I could hold a pencil, but only in the last few years have both Bee and I taken writing more seriously. We currently have eight novels on the go at the moment (and a ninth book that we’re writing together!)
But, writing is quite a time consuming past-time. Over the summer, we hope to embark on more writing adventures, and actually get a book finished!
2. Making Videos!
We make videos twice a week for our corresponding YouTube channel ‘Heart Full Of Books’. It usually takes about two hours to film, edit and upload, so its something we can do fairly regularly. Making videos has really helped us gain presentation confidence and definitely helped to formulate ideas and articulate them coherently. We love to involve our lovely friend Sarah as much as we can – it’s so fun to film challenges with an unsuspecting guest!
3. Watching TV shows!
This isn’t something we do regularly, but when we do find something we love, that love is hardcore. We mourn shows when they finish for at least three days. Our latest obsession is the web series, based off of ‘Much Ado About Nothing’, called ‘Nothing Much To Do’ Examples of previous obsessions include: Blue Water High, Dawson’s Creek, The Office (US), Nowhere Boys, X-Men Evolution.
4. School Stuff!
Let’s not elaborate on that one.
So, what’s your favourite thing to do when you’re not reading?

You NEED, NEED, NEED to watch ‘In Earnest’!! It’s a literary web series based on ‘The Importance Of Being Earnest’ by Oscar Wilde and I cried…a lot. You’d love it if you like NMTD and LLL!! 🙂
