Hi, my name is Jane and I’m a bookaholic. I live with my husband and little dog in a beautiful coastal town in Australia. My favourite pastimes are reading and writing–which is why I started this blog.
When I don’t have my head buried in a book, I work as a marketer and copywriter. I’ve previously worked for many years in book publishing in Australia and the UK. (Note: I only write on this blog when I am not working in publishing so that my reviews can remain unbiased.) I’ve also worked as a bookseller and an English Language Teacher in South Korea and the UK.
One of the joys of reading is being able to share what you read with others. I love recommending and debating books. It’s also great to hear other people’s perspectives. Hopefully this blog will encourage readers to leave their views. And I’d love some suggestions on what to read next.
I also love writing so will sometimes go off topic and rant about something–hopefully in a poetic, non-boring way. I’m very interested in the art of writing: reading about writing, talking about writing, thinking about writing and generally procrastinating when it comes to my own writing.
