After my breakfast, I sat down for a solid read.
‘‘Twas the Nightshift Before Christmas” by Adam Kay is 140 pages long, so a genius first book of the year choice.
This book follows on from his bestselling “This is going to hurt” – with a focus on seasonal anecdotes.
However, there was something different about the tone of his introductions and conclusions. He’s a little less glib, a little more honest about the impact of leaving and I found it to be a better book for it.
It’s still heartbreaking and funny in places, but given the year that we’ve lived through, it really makes you appreciate the NHS.
