I can’t believe I actually completed this list! Do you know how long I’ve been working on it? Three years! You read that correctly - three years. This was the first ever blog post I started writing back in the first weeks of my time at Dog Eared Books. I had no idea ho...

A few weeks ago I did a post about different books to read when you’re travelling around a foreign country. Then I realised that more often than not, we end up visiting other cities here in Australia. Thanks to family who spread out, friends and even theatre encouragin...

I'm always on the lookout when book hunting for Doggy Decorations for the shop. I love finding something that will make people smile when they spot it hidden in a corner of the shop. Unfortunately I am often constrained by prices, size or location. So here's some littl...

I don't think I'm a big crier in normal life. However my partner often refers to a 'tear quota' that I need to fill and and if I don’t, then I have a massive bawl to get it out of my system. Well, these books may have been read after a couple of dry months because they...

Do you remember what your favourite book in childhood was? Apparently I don’t. According to my father my favourite book as a child was ‘Peter Pan’. Embarrassingly I don’t remember ever even having read it! However I was then reminded of my mother reading me the book en...

There are so many pictures on the internet of reading nooks that look amazing but if I’m going to be honest - they don’t look very comfortable to sit and read in! The picture below, looks great - but would it really be a comfortable place to sit and devour a book?

We all know them... The problems we have being bookworms!

There's so many different ones, but these are some of my favourites that I experience myself and every time they make me giggle or at least sigh in understanding. 

Go all you Book Dragons! Go forth & read &...
