Welcome to my blog.

I’m Bee, a tea loving, book devouring, art and crafting seasider living in Margate, Kent.

For me, there’s nothing more relaxing than getting stuck into a good book. But when I ventured to find a book club in our sunny-ish seaside town, there were none to be found. So I started one. Bee’s Bookshare met once a month to share the books we loved, loathed, couldn’t put down and couldn’t get into, each taking away a new read and having a jolly good social time while we were at it. It was so popular that shares opened in Deal and Faversham too, spreading the reading love around Kent.

After 3 and a half years and over 300 books shared, for now it’s time to put a bookmark in Bee’s Bookshare, so this blog is now about my personal reading adventures, new literacy projects and booky banter.

The love of bookshare continues with groups in Thanet, Deal and Faversham… please do join these brilliant book loving groups.

Six Ways to Well-Being: Keep Learning

In Kent, the Six Ways to Well-being project led by Kent County Council aims to help people connect with and improve their well-being. On National Library Day 2 February 2014, I was asked how books help improve your well-being. Here’s the interview.
