Hi, my name is Kate Hammer and I’m obsessed by
- how people live in their internal worlds and in the wider world,
- what we see and what we miss,
- what we tolerate and what we knock ourselves out to change.
Welcome to my Bookshop Shop. Bookshop.org supports independent booksellers up and down the country. My shop offers a window on what I've read and loved, or found worthwhile.
Very occasionally, I'll also include in my thematic lists:
- what's on my to-read list
- what's been recommended to me, which I may or may not add to my TBR list
When you buy a book via my Bookshop Shop, I'll receive a 10% commission on every sale, and Bookshop.org gives a matching 10% to independent bookshops.
Bookshop.org also offers you the chance to choose a specific bookshop to support. If you want to choose a specific bookshop to support, choose them from our map and they’ll receive 30% of the cover price (or almost all of the profit) on your orders for a year. Otherwise, 10% of the cover price of your order will contribute to an earnings pool that will be evenly distributed among participating independent bookshops each month. Either way, your order is sent straight to your address, and all in-stock items arrive in 2-3 days.
Why books matter to me
While an active member of London Writers Salon in 2020, my relish of and reverence for the power of writing to help us resolve ourselves deepened.
Books aren't always a vehicle for storytelling, and not all stories live in books. Yet, as a storyteller, story shaper and story hunter, I believe a world with accessible libraries containing diverse titles is a better world. I hope you'll build your personal library and help others build theirs.
