I've never been a Patron of Reading before. Not many people have - it's quite a new idea, you know. I suppose that means you've never had a Patron of Reading, either, so it's a new experience for both of us. Well, all of us - I'm assuming there's more than just one of you.
Anyway, I'm really looking forward to getting to know you and your school. I've had a look at your book blog, and I hope you'll have a look at my website and maybe read some of my books, so that we'll know a bit about one another by the time I come to visit you. I've got some ideas about how what I can do as your Patron of Reading, but maybe some of you will have some ideas too. Please let me know!
Right - I've got a book to finish writing before the end of the month, so I'd better get back to work. I'm really looking forward to hearing from you soon!
Very best wishes
