Living in 2016 it’s fair to say that technology often rules our lives. The digital age has transformed the way we communicate, learn and exist. For better or for worse, it is a mainstay in pretty much every one’s dwellings. Because we are often so entrenched in our social media and the cyber realm, it’s refreshing to pull a book from the bookcase, sit down and spend a little time away from tablets, smartphones and computers.
