That Book You Like is a place to discover and discuss all things bookish. And, it’s not just limited to books. Although reading is my first love, I also adore art, films, events and all things lovely. As such, you’ll find TBYL getting involved in a pretty interesting range of activities and trying out a lot of different items.
The blog is where it all started, and it’s where you’ll find my reviews, brags and interviews. Excitingly though, since the start of 2012, TBYL has expanded its horizons, and now includes the online TBYL Book Club and also The Store – full of books, gifts and a very special range of TBYL Collections. You can visit TBYL at www.thatbookyoulike.com.au
I really love reading, and love even more having the chance to talk to others about books and writing. Please feel free to share your thoughts on my thoughts, and on the bits and pieces I come across. There’s nothing quite like a bookish conversation.
I can’t wait to chat…
Cheers, Mandi J
A little bit about me:
I’m a mum to two boys (a 11 year old and a 4 year old), and make a little time each week for a day-job. I’ve been writing, one way or another for as long as I can remember, but have only recently started to write about what I love.
In 2009 I became part of the Breast Cancer gang, and subsequently spent most of 2010 undergoing some charming treatments. It was tough, but it was also a great excuse to hang out with my boys more, and to change the direction of my life quite substantially, very much for the better. At this stage, I’m happy to say all is well and cancer-free.
I am currently on a bit of a crusade to make sure that my family and I make time to do nice things (on a daily basis wherever possible), and my blog is largely about sharing some of those lovely things, be it books, films, art or yummy stuff. I’m also very keen to include ideas for both kids and grown-ups, hence the sometimes eclectic mix of topics in my blog. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
