Our Reading Agony this week:  My new partner likes to eat out, but I can’t afford to keep doing it. – The library has a fantastic range of cook books; why not borrow one that has recipes for their favourite types of food. It’ll save you a fortune and you can dress it up as being romantic.

Staff quote of the day: ‘I must be a clock watcher because I keep looking for the clock!’
