Hello! My name’s Rachael Simpson and the dog above is Mylo the Blind Jack Russell, the namesake of this blog.

I love books and have a huge passion for supporting independent bookshops and second hand books. It’s so important that you support the jobs of print, it’s would be so easy for this to die out.

I studied web and graphic design for 5 years but after graduating and struggling to find a job I found I had fallen out of love with this industry and instead want to work in the industry I’ve learnt to love.

The dream is to own a portable bookshop, being able to travel around the UK selling books and meeting amazing people. But till that time comes I’m stuck working in retail.
