About (and why damppebbles?)

Hello.  My name is Emma and damppebbles is my baby.  I’m in my…ahem…late thirties and live in South Oxfordshire with my husband and two young children (my 3 year old son gives me a run for my money in the book loving stakes).

One of my childhood memories that always sticks in my mind is when I would bundle up my Sweet Valley Twins books, take them to school and lend them (in a cool library like fashion) to my friends. Many I would never see again (books, not friends) but I think from that point on I learnt the joy in sharing books.

My tastes have changed somewhat and I’m more into serial killer novels than books about horses and milkshakes (thanks for starting me off on the right foot though SVT) but I still want to share books with people. (I used to volunteer in the local library so know what I’m talking about when I say libraries are cool!!)

I’ve always found recommendations from real readers rather than PR hype to be a good starting point when choosing a new read. Which meant that I followed several booky blogs. One day it dawned on me that I could start a blog myself and damppebbles was created.

damppebbles because if I ever win the lottery I’m opening my own bookshop. A bit like Waterstones but so much better as I’d serve wine!
