I launched Lounge Books on 25th April last year, so, I thought I'd reflect on a year of running a community for book-lovers. First and foremost, I'd like to thank every person who has visited the site, followed me on Twitter, signed up to the newsletter and given me such a huge amount of support. Lounge Books was a hobby to start with, a side hustle, something to keep me busy and to see what was possible on a shoestring. (If you're interested, I've spent under £3000 and lots of my time and enthusiasm).

The scores on the doors after a year look like this:

My plan is to take Lounge Books to the next stage and offer authors and publishers opportunities to reach Lounge Books' passionate readers. You can find out more about those opportunities here.

 
 

I really hope you like what I'm doing with Lounge Books and as always, I'd love to hear from you if you'd like to collaborate with me.
