WE LOVE YOUR CURATION OF BOOKS ON OUR SHELVES! TELL US MORE ABOUT YOUR PASSION AND MOTIVATION BEHIND TINY BOOKSELLER?
I had big dreams of opening a bookshop after the birth of my second kid but alas time, money, life. It's a big and expensive undertaking and I also totally underestimated just how much life would change going from 1 to 2 kids. So I decided to make mini shops I suppose: curated collections in other businesses. It's a passion project really. I value reading so much and am one of those annoyingly evangelical people who like to place books firmly into people's hands and urge them to read it. Sharing books and exchanging conversation around those books gives me great joy in life and so this feels like an extension of that. Also, two lovely sisters decided to open a bookshop in Thirroul and gave me a job there, so it all worked out pretty well!
WHAT'S YOUR FAVOURITE BOOK ON THE SHELVES RIGHT NOW?
Pachinko is a brilliant, sink-your-teeth-into-it piece of historical fiction written by an incredible women about incredible woman in Korea and Japan. Normal People, if you're one of the few who haven't read it yet, is a deeply interior novel about what it means to be young and in love in all of its messy, nuanced and beautiful glory. Grandma Z Comes to Town is a gorgeous children's book about the special relationship between grandparents and their grandchildren. The imagination and design of the book is stunning! Oh and I can't go past the Little People, Big Dreams series. Vivienne Westwood is in store currently. David Bowie will be coming soon, as will my hero and fav lady, Dolly Parton!
