Just another WordPress.com site


Sometimes life takes us on unexpected detours where the best thing to do is sit back and enjoy the ride. One of those little detours bought me here – to the world of children’s books. 2009 saw me land what many who know me best would consider my dream job. To say I was pleased to have finally landed a job in a book store would be a slight (read massive) understatement. It would be fair to say I love books, passionately devouring them for as long as I can remember.

Probably one of my earliest memories is of taking a Famous Five book to school when I was 8. However when I was young there were picture books and junior fiction then just general fiction or genre fiction, it could be there were more sections I never knew about because for the most part I grew up in very small country towns.

Let’s fast forward through my reading years which goes from Enid Blyton to Trixie Beldon, Nancy Drew, Sweet Valley High, a bit of romance, Agatha Christie and other ‘adult’ authors. Before I started working my dream job I read predominately Fantasy and Crime.

When I started at Borders they asked if I was okay assisting down in the Kid’s department, I figured at the time that was because I was the only person on staff that wasn’t management that had kids (I found out later that the kid’s department scares other staff members). I saw no problem with it, my eldest was reaching reading age and I wanted her to love reading like I do. In this process I discovered a new passion.

I Love Kid’s Books.

With the well publicised demise of the company I work for I found myself faced with the possibility of having to say goodbye to something I really love. Lets face it there isn’t a great deal of opportunity for a Kid’s Book Specialist and so came the idea for this site. It isn’t a new idea but others I have found somehow don’t work the way I want one to. So here I am. Ideas that have flashed around in the ether of my mind I’m now putting into cohesive thoughts – bear with me while I adjust to that.

With this in mind I welcome you to my world…an exciting, thrilling, fun, provoking, mysterious and adventurous world I have come to call TheKylieVerse.
