Although it is a little overcast down here today, we've still decided to sit round my pool and chat, so please welcome my lovely guest, Kim Nash.
"Hi Pauline, it’s a pleasure to join you on your fabulous terrace in the sunshine. Pass the champers sweetie! *clink*
Thanks so much for inviting me to join you and tell you a little bit about me and why I blog about books. Here goes :
I have always been an avid reader. As a child I remember my Mom telling me not to stay up too late reading, but I would sit up till all hours dying to get to the end! She didn't mind really, she was exactly the same when she was young - obviously where I got it from.
I love a book which makes me think about it, when I’m not reading it. I lose myself in the plots and feel like I’m watching from the shadows. I find it really easy to picture the people and the scenes and there are days when I just can’t wait to get home to find out what the next thing is that is going to happen. I love chick lit, love, humour, crime, stories about spirits, angels and mediums, and I love to read self help type books too. That probably covers most genres really! I just wish I had more time to read. I’d be quite happy to go to bed really early every night to read, but think that makes me a very unsociable member of the family!
When I was young, I always imagined myself having my own book publishing company where I got to read books all day long! Fantastic. I'm now 43 years old (ssshhhh don't tell anyone that please) and never got my dream. However, last year I had a “moment” when I decided that it was about time I did something I really enjoyed doing.
I do believe that I was born to have a life like that which was probably why I could relate to it so much. Maybe one day!
I am Mom to 4 year old Oliver, who keeps me busy and is the love of my life! I work for a PR and editorial agency in Cannock, Staffs called Passionate Media (www.passionatemedia.co.uk). I absolutely love working with the people there, such a genuine and lovely group of people and I am a reviewer and contributor to our family travel website http://www.havealovelytime.com/
which is really enjoyable. We also specialise in helping people with their social media profiles so I get to Facebook and tweet to my heart’s content.
I hope that my wonderful Mom is looking down on me from heaven and is proud of the fact that I've created this blog all about books and that she's happy that I'm able to spend a little of my time doing something that I thoroughly enjoy. I just wish that I could share all these wonderful books with her.
Thanks so much for having me over Pauline and have me whitter on about my hobby. I’ve had a lovely time but I think I’ve talked enough now and I’m probably ready for another glass of bubbly x x"
Thanks for sitting around my pool, enjoy the rest of the bubbly, *hands over a full bottle! *
