Dean Fox works at Cornwallis Academy and I had to include part of  his impassioned email: “As a school we value reading, not simply because it improves literacy and educational attainment, but because of the escapism, fun, excitement, fear and different worlds a good book can catapult you into. Reading is about love, death, hope, survival, loss and every other possible subject you can imagine. Reading makes life colourful, intriguing and stimulating. Put simply: reading covers everything.”
