Today it’s my great pleasure to welcome Karen Cole to the blog to help spread a little BookLove. Karen blogs at Hair Past a Freckle which is a wonderful blog with a wide range of books, including some of my all time favourites. Before we find out whcih books have made Karen’s all time greatest books list, let’s find our a bit more about Karen.
My name is Karen, I write about books on my blog, Hair Past A Freckle and I’m a mum to three daughters, aged 9, 15 and 18. I’m a midday supervisor in a primary school and from September I will also be a teaching assistant there, mostly 1:1 with a child in Reception but I’ll also be the whole class TA for a few hours a week, and I’m going to be the cover TA for the other classes too so I’ll be kept busy! Before having my daughters I was a veterinary nurse in a mixed practice – my claim to fame is I once asked Michael Kitchen (of Foyle’s War) if he had gas! (Gas was his cat’s name, so it wasn’t an entirely random question but I could have phrased it better!) I originally started Hair Past A Freckle as a blog about anything and everything but I fell in love with book blogging. I love being able to writing about and recommending books, and reviewing them is my way of thanking authors for the hours of pleasure they give me. The vast majority of book bloggers are wonderful too and it’s a real pleasure to be a small part of such a friendly community.
