Welcome to Retrieve-A-Book

“If you don’t like to read, you haven’t found the right book.” – J.K. Rowling

As someone who has worked in bookshops for four years I know this statement to be incredibly true. Most who disagree with me when I tell them this I usually find that they think they are too cool for reading, or they are scared. For the former I inform them of how amazing reading can be, I rely on my excitement being contagious, it almost always works. The latter is generally more tricky, but I do like a challenge, the key there is to find the book that is even more enticing than reading is scary. There is always a book!

Having just started a kids book club at my book shop, I have realised that there are more books then there is time, and I must be more organised (I love to be organised) so i thought why not record my recommendations, inclinations and excitement in a place accessible to others.

Yes, the name is a pun, logo coming soon which will make that clearer.
