Meet The Independent Business: Blind Date With A Book
What inspired you start your business?
Well, it was during the first UK lockdown, I got back into reading again and I thought maybe lots of other people are reading more as well! so, I decided to start selling some of my books initially.
Where did you get the idea from?
I saw something similar on an American book website and thought that’s a cool idea, so it was inspiration from that and then I thought, it’s true a lot of people do judge a book by its cover, so I thought this is something that might get people reading different genres and authors.
What’s your favourite book?
There are a few!
The Unhoneymooners – Christina Lauren
The Kiss Quotient – Helen Hoang
You Say it First – Katie Cotugno
We Were On a Break – Lindsey Kelk
What are you loving most about your journey of the business?
All of the stories I’m hearing from customers about how happy it’s been making them, some who have just got back into reading! Also, all of the lovely feedback, and meeting so many new people.
What piece of advice would you give another young person wanting to start a business?
Go for it. Just do it, it’ll be one of the most amazing experiences and also slightly nerve-wracking. But honestly go for it. It’s so worth it!
What’s the best piece of advice you have been given?
Keep going, look how far you’ve come!
What’s the vision for your business?
To continue to offer a wider genre of books and authors to customers!
