Congratulations to our very own Lindy Jones, winner of the Bookseller of the Year Award, sponsored by the Australian Booksellers Association and Text Publishing!
Lindy is one of our buyers, and she spends a lot of her time here selecting great books for our customers to enjoy. She spends a lot of her own time reading as many of these books as she can so she can make the right choices. Lindy's knowledge of what makes a good book is why she has been chosen to be a judge for both the Indie Awards and the ABIA Book of the Year.
Lindy is also responsible for our excellent Children's Books department, and is THE person to see if you want advice in this area.
Lindy also uses her knowledge of children's books to participate in The Specialist Children's Booksellers Group, who have recently produced the third edition of their booklet Don't Leave Childhood Without. She has also been involved with the Benjamin Andrew Footpath Library which provides books to homeless and disadvantaged people.
It's people like Lindy that make the book trade a special place to work in. Dave
