Leon and June
How can you not love watching Leon and June? Any viewer of Gogglebox will be familiar with the pair, as they have been part of the show since it started, and come out with some hilarious lines, but are clearly very insightful too. Leon might be less reserved, in his comments, however he quite often says things that others are thinking, but would be too polite to say on national television. He’s funny, when he’s always rummaging in the kitchen for things, and I particularly remember one occasion, when he was looking for the remote. He thought that June had moved it, and then discovered for some reason he’d left it in the toilet.
There are parts of their interactions which sort of remind me of my parents, especially when June rolls her eyes, at one of Leon’s comments. Their very normality is what is so memorable about them, if that makes sense, they probably remind others of older people in their lives too.

I'm a thirty something woman who lives in the north of England. I have been a writer for as long as I can remember, creating stories both written and verbal since childhood. While studying at Edge Hill College, I got several poems published by a small publisher in the USA, and in Europe. I have been part of several writing groups, and done quite a few courses in a attempt to hone my writing skills further. I love reading different genres of fiction, knowing that the best way to develop my own writing, and my vocabulary is by exposing myself to the different ways that other people choose to describe things.
The most recent writing course that I've been part of, run by a published author, included a exercise in which we were challenged to read things that we would never usually even look at.
It inspired me to take up a challenge. Namely to attempt to read at least one book by every author which is stocked in my local library. I soon realised that I was being far too ambitious, especially given the fact that every library rotates their stock too often for me to keep track.
I've decided to instead attempt to read a book every day, starting with a author whose surname begins with A, and ending with a author whose surname begins with Z. It doesn't matter what the topic of the book is, or if it's fiction or non fiction, everything is useful for me at the minute.
