3 Tips to Start THE BEST BOOK CLUB EVER

Join me as I share my tips for building the ultimate book club and sharing the literary love with new readers everywhere.

Shop My Favourites

Shop...

I’m a librarian…but also? I’m a lover of statement earrings (to distract from unwashed hair and tired eyes), a connoisseur of dresses with pockets …and a collector of eclectic bits and bobs for friends, family and gorgeous students at school! On this page you’ll find links to some of my favourite online brands. If you’ve liked my outfit on insta or zoomed in close to look at the Protea flower pattern on ChickPea’s pillowcases, you’ll likely find the links here.

Some links on this website are affiliate links, which means when you click on those links and make a purchase, this can result in a small commission that is credited to this site. It doesn’t cost you a cent, but as a small business, it helps to keep the pages turning here at Children’s Books Daily!

First off, a couple of my favourite booksellers for purchasing online or in person.

I'm yet to find an online retailer as reliable as Costume Box for Book Week costumes, dress ups in general and party props, prep and supplies. Super fast service, well priced...Book Week DONE.

From statement earrings to really brightly patterned clothes which just make me smile. I love anything quirky and a little left of centre...along with anything that smashes the stereotype of what a librarian should look like! I darn well loves clothes and accessories!

I am a very big fan of shopping online for my kids' presents, lunchboxes, clothes, natural skincare (for me too!), furniture and *all of the things*. These are some of the brands I buy from a little too often (use code CBD for Free Shipping with Book Geek).

And finally, brands that keep things ticking along here at Children's Books Daily!
