“That was me aged about 8, after swimming on a Saturday morning at Ladywell swimming baths somewhere south of London. I’ve got my towel tucked under my arm and my dad and I are on our way to Foyles bookshop which was our Saturday morning treat. My dad told me it was the biggest bookshop in the world and I loved it, the fresh piles of new books and being allowed to choose one.

Dad bought me Rudyard Kipling when I wanted Enid Blyton and I still have the books he bought me. This is where my love of books and all things bibliophile began. Escapism among the towering stacks of freshly laid print.”

I love this description of Louise’s love of books.

Louloulovesbooks was introduced to me at my book club at HBP, I have seen a few of her books and each one gives me that “I want to own this” feeling. They are visual treats with a brilliant sense of humour. Check out her website here, I am trying so hard not to buy to many books.
