You can’t leave the house – and your favourite bookshop is closed for the next couple of weeks, anyway. Fear not, this is where Amazon Kindle really shines. If you’re not already an account holder, set yourself up and then come back to our list of the most inspirational interior and decorating screen-reads for some escapism.
