Our board member Lola Akinmade Åkerström has published a new book, Lagom: The Swedish Secret of Living Well.
The hardcover version, released this month, was chosen by the famous British bookseller WH Smith for inclusion on their reading list for August:
We love nothing more than discovering new books, and even better, having a good chat about them afterwards with fellow bookworms. And so whether you’re devoted to Richard and Judy’s recommendations, searching for some Fresh Talent to read before all your friends, or simply looking for something new to get lost in on a Sunday afternoon, take a look at the books that we can’t stop talking about this month and let us know what you think!
We couldn’t be more proud!
