This may have been an April Fool

I’m charmed by the news that Amazon’s best seller list is this week dominated by…. not Zoella, nor Harper Lee’s much awaited thirty year old follow up to ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’… Nope.  It’s colouring books for adults.  How delightful.

It fits with the emerging trend we talked about a few years ago – the appearance of young at heart grown ups we started calling ‘kidults’.

It also fits with the desperate need we all have to escape from the stress of our everyday lives.  One of the most popular books on the list is a colouring version of Mindfulness.  A visual meditation. We probably need more of this sort of thing.
