“Likely Story” bring books alive

Well the show has ended and the fun is over. Back to work,  these books must settle down after the excitement they have had over the last couple of months. I could never have imagined the books telling their story so passionately and enjoyable. “Likely Story” by The Sunshine Coast Theatre Company reminds us all of the power and purpose all the books have. Have you ever imagined what your favourite book would tell you…

Buderim Buying is environmentally conscious

What are the residents of Buderim buying? We are a wonderfully environmentally conscious group of people in Buderim. This is evidenced by one of our top best seller’s this month being our Boomerang Bags. We are selling so many of the Boomerang Bag’s I’m starting to think I might become a bag seller. Just kidding but it is wonderful to see this community-centric bag running around Buderim in everyone’s arms. If you haven’t seen the…

Relaxing in Whistler

Sitting here watching the snow fall, nursing a cold in the Whistler Library I’m reminded of the wonderful world of books and what they can offer in so many ways. I’ve tried meditation, yoga, walking (which I still power on with) swimming, gym classes, drinking and many other ways of relaxing but the feeling of sitting in a library distilling my thoughts grabs me like no other relaxation. It grounds me and makes me feel…

28 years and counting, Lonely days no more

The world can be a lonely place sometimes. I know this from the years I spent between dropping off and waiting for my children to come home from school. How I loved/love the moment they return to the fold and offload all the wonderful things they experienced in a day. But the hours between where empty except for an occasional friendly get together we managed to make with other mothers.   So, I was wonderfully…

Come on…… Let’s Talk

David Gaunt, from GleeBooks, talking about what Amazon means for the Bookselling industry recently made this comment  “… we connect writers and readers, and there is nobody out there — nobody — who could do it more intimately and profoundly. If you want to discover a new great voice, you have to come to us. By the time you find out about that author on Amazon or in the mainstream media, you’re just jumping on…

MY SoapBox: Let’s fight for our community

The world of shopping has changed so much over the last 100 years. Okay so I wasn’t around for some of it I’ve read about and seen some major changes. Can you even imagine shopping JUST where you live now? Walking down the street to pick up fruit and vegetables, bread, meat, clothes, books and everything else you needed. You got to speak to other residents and shop owners and find out about what is…

The Dangers of Reading in Bed

I was reading an article published in The Altantic.com . It talked of the dangers of reading in bed in 18th and 19th centuries. Of fires and burns that regularly occurred from reading at night to candlelight and falling asleep. This was astonishing to me. I found it so unfathomable that death can occur from reading in bed, a favourable and most enjoyable part of my day. To think it could be as dangerous as possibility…

Book in your life

Writing a blog about what books offer people isn’t hard, I just need to get down on paper what I see and feel every day. I have the most wonderful experiences with customers every day and learn some amazing facts about the world through the books I read. I want to write about the journey I have taken to get to be a book shop owner, a privilege and extremely enjoyable role the bookstore plays…

You are taken into a mysterious place that the author has created. The excitement rises about this new place.…
