👋🏻MEET THE TEAM👋🏻
This time, meet Lindsay, our Children’s Book Selections Manager!

Job Title

Children’s Book Selection Manager

How long have you been with WBC?

I started at the end of October so around 5 months now. The best 5 months ever!

What did you do before WBC?

I have two sons aged 6 and 3 so they have taken up most of my time for the past few years! Prior to having children I worked in finance.

Favourite book and why

I have always enjoyed books that transport me to different cultures and periods of history. Books which give me an insight into different ways of life. For that reason, the most treasured book on my shelf is A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini. Close runners up would be Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See, Burial Rites by Hannah Kent and The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah.

Where do you most like to read?

I look forward to those warm summer evenings where I can sit outside in the garden and read my book in peace as the world winds down. That’s if my children go to sleep of course. And I don’t fall asleep too quickly.

What was your favourite book as a child and why?

I loved the Brambly Hedge series by Jill Barklem and The Jolly Postman by Janet and Alan Alhlberg.

Favourite Tea and Cake
I wish I liked tea but I really don’t! So it will have to be a good quality americano and a generous slice of sticky gingerbread.

Hey lovelies! 🌸 how are you today?
*
I’ve been thinking I’d quite like to have a book subscription... I love spending time in independent book stores and choosing books to read, but I am in love with the idea of just being sent a random book in the post. Like a little treat from me to me! 💕Do you have a book subscription? Can you recommend me one please? 👑
*
After Anna - what a compelling read! I loved that this book had snippets of the abductors point of view! I devoured it in one afternoon! Twists and turns keeps you hooked and I’m pretty proud that I managed to figure out the ending! 4/5
*
✨SYNOPSIS - The real nightmare starts when her daughter is returned… *
A girl is missing. Five years old, taken from outside her school. She has vanished, traceless. The police are at a loss; her parents are beyond grief. Their daughter is lost forever, perhaps dead, perhaps enslaved. But the biggest mystery is yet to come: one week after she was abducted, their daughter is returned. She has no memory of where she has been. And this, for her mother, is just the beginning of the nightmare.✨

Bookmail is always a good day and @foxedquarterly is one of the best! Now for life to slow down so I can enjoy catching up on the latest Slightly Foxed quarterly and the latest Slightly Foxed edition of Something Wholesale by Eric Newby. And for spring to arrive so I can enjoy reading outside again! Happy Friday all! 🦊

#bookmail is the best mail and it's even better when it's comics! Yesterday I receives my first ever @shortbox_comic comic box! I absolutely love it! I've already read Cat & Bag (which was amazing and funny and sad), Wizard + Softpig (very cute and funny) and Navelgazing (strange and odd but really good and gosh amazing art) and I'm looking forward to reading the others :) if you like comics I definitely recommend you check this company out!

👋🏻MEET THE TEAM👋🏻
This month, it’s the turn of Packaging legend Alisha... Job Title
Packaging Assistant
How long have you been with WBC?
Almost three months, it’s flown by!
What did you do before WBC?
After graduating from university, I had temporary jobs at a preschool and a supermarket warehouse.
Favourite book and why?
This is a really hard question! I don’t think I could answer this with just one book. A few books that I’ve really enjoyed: The Slow Regard of Silent Things by Patrick Rothfuss, The Reader on the 6.27 by Jean-Paul Didlierlaurent, Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami, Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovitch, The Red Notebook by Antoine Laurain, and the list goes on.
Where do you most like to read?
I love to read in bed, with one of my cats on my lap and during the summer, I love to sit in the back garden.
What was your favourite book as a child and why?
Mine would have to be the Harry Potter series. I started reading them when I was quite young, and it seems like they’ve always been a part of my life. The characters became friends of mine, and I loved learning more about the magic and history within the series. I still remember waiting until midnight to get the next book in the series!
Favourite tea and cake?
I’ll have a slice of any cake, I do love a Bakewell tart though, with a big cup of strong tea.

Handwritten letters are an aesthetic we all adore. Hence, inspired by Darcy Dolphin and her pen-pal, Clarice Bean, we decided to give you a writing kit. Presenting, the ‘D.I.Y. Pen Pal Kit’ for our 7 to 8 year olds!

What we love: The concept of having a friend you can interact with through words has us spellbound. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have an entire kit dedicated to the concept of pen pal and postal letters? Well, we would certainly love to have on!

What kids will love: Kids would love the brown-paper envelopes. They would actually enjoy colouring the cute doodles that form part of the activity. Oh! And also, writing letters, duhh!

Happy Wednesday everyone! How is it going? I’m just filling out job applications with a heating pad on my chest. My ribs are sore from coughing all night. .

QOTD: Have you received any books from #booksubscriptions that you were iffy about and ended up really loving? .

So I saw that #owlcrate ‘s readathon ends in two days and while I don’t have many subscriptions box but The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue is one I got from an #owlcrate and haven’t read. I originally wasn’t super excited to read this one, but I’ve been seeing a lot of good reviews and might pick up soon. .

The January @bookboxclub box was themed "Geeks Unite". It had a gorgeous candle, nail wraps, a tote bag, a magnet, a calendar featuring some really cool artwork and The Fandom by Anna Day (+ signed bookplate). I was so happy to get this book and the rest of the box was great too, Book Box Club are a consistently brilliant company to deal with.

👋🏻 MEET THE TEAM 👋🏻 This is one of our Book Selections Managers, Rhiannon, who joined us around 4 months ago.
What did you do before WBC?

After graduating University in 2016, I moved back to Essex and worked as a copywriter and account manager in a marketing agency for a year. When I left, I went on an incredible six week trip and visited Indonesia, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and India. I beat the post-travelling blues when I came back because I was lucky enough to start at the WBC!

Favourite book and why

You might think that this answer is a cop-out but... I don’t have a favourite book. I think I’ll just give the cliché answer for someone of my generation: the books that I turn to when I feel anxious, unsure or in need of comfort are the Harry Potter series. I can’t explain why I love the series so much concisely but I recently started listening to a podcast called @hpsacredtext on which the hosts work their way through the books chronologically, reading a chapter a week through one central theme and apply traditional forms of sacred reading to the text. They can explain it better than I can here! If you love the series, or even if you’re just a fan of close reading, I highly recommend it!

Where do you most like to read?

Either in bed or in my favourite chair – a big, bright yellow, wingback armchair.

What was your favourite book as a child and why? ‘The Chronicles of Narnia’. When I was little, I was a big fan of saying, “Let’s pretend...” and starting elaborate games of make believe. You can see why the idea of children disappearing through a wardrobe or a painting or from a train station and into a magical world appealed to me. In Narnia, C.S. Lewis created a world so carefully built, so vivid that I could almost feel the snow biting at my skin, taste the Turkish Delight, hear the magical horn that calls the Pevensie children back to Narnia in Prince Caspian. Of course now I understand the allegorical nature of the series but, at the time, I think I just loved the idea that anything was possible if you only believed.
Favourite Tea and Cake
I don’t like tea but I love cake! My favourite cake would probably have to be Passion Cake!
