Hi Everyone! My name is Stacy and I have been reading since I was a young girl. I definitely got the reading bug from my mum and my Nan, who also love to read.

I lived for the days where I could go to the library; when I turned 11 you can imagine how happy I was when I was allowed to take 12 books home instead of 6! Nowadays it’s 30!! I have no self control for that!

I have carried my love of reading throughout my life and I always feel like there is nothing quite like taking some time out for a cuppa and a good book.

I currently work for Waterstones, which is a dream come true and the ultimate goal is to own my own bookshop – think a mixture of The Shop Around the Corner from You’ve Got Mail mixed with the old style feel of the bookshop from Funny Face where Audrey Hepburn’s character worked.

I am here to share my love of reading with you all, with those who also enjoy reading and I’m always looking to make new friends.

Let’s Get Reading!

Reading gives us someplace to go when we have to stay where we are.

Mason Cooley

Great books help you understand, and they help you feel understood.

John Green

The more you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.

Dr. Seuss

I also run a Book Club through The Liberty Lounge, Portsmouth. Let me know if you’d like to be a part of it.
