Dermot says:

“A person who enjoys reading is never bored, you can be anywhere – a beach, a train, a playground – and when you pick up a book you are transported into the pages and far away, that’s what makes reading magic.”

 
We couldn’t agree more!

Can you guess which book Dermot would pick to read for the Challenge?
