A new way I’m borrowing books – I’ve been experimenting with Libby app. It’s incredible as it uses your library card to get you access to your countries / local libraries digital collection.

Podcast episode with Netflix co-founder – Gary Vaynerchuk had a conversation with Marc Randolph co-founder of Netflix this week and it’s a corker. Marc is 61 and the story of his life is fascinating.

I hope you have a fantastic weekend doing the things you enjoy with the people you love.
