Encouraging reading with graphic novels

Encouraging reading with graphic novels

Graphic novels have gained popularity in recent years. This is partially thanks to the fact that it’s now actually quite fashionable to be a geek!

Some people opt to buy a property in a city like London to visit every now and then to give them a definite home between travelling but others opt to travel the world with little to no stable home. However, as already said it works for them and is often suggested to be a far better life for a child than simply staying in one place. But with two very different options what do they offer?
