I make no secret of my total love of the written word, and have referred more than once to my books as "my other babies"! I tend to be the go-to-gal amongst friends when it comes to books and consider myself a book medicine woman! Whether you're pregnant, feeling angry, want to learn meditation, prune raspberries, learn about Steiner education or have a bad back, Lucy is sure to just the right book for you. And a lot of books I have!
I am also fortunate to be JUNO magazine's main book reviewer- what a wonderful job! So a lot of really interesting new titles come my way. I invest in my bookshelf for myself, my family, and my wider community. I run an informal library service - I even have a borrowing book as so many of them are out on loan!
I love finding great new books, and perhaps you do too. Often people ask me for a book recommendations, so here they are, for you too, just in case they might be of use.
