About The Hungry Bookshelf

Hi! and thanks for visiting my website.

If you would like to know a little about myself, I started my website in 2009 when I was a stay at home mum with 3 children under 3. I am now working fulltime, on top of running around after my children and working on my website.

I starting selling on ebay to bring in the extra dollars we needed when we dropped my income.  I ended up drawn to selling books as they were my love pre-kids. I am very passionate about children's books and believe that all kids should have unlimited access to as many books as possible, and that they should be read to and should be reading from an early age.  My eldest (a set of boy/girl twins) were reading words by the time they were 2, and had memorised their favourite books before they were 3. The Very Hungry Caterpillar was a book that we read at least 10 times a day, so they knew it backwards before they could walk.

I collect Little Golden Books, Cocky's Circle Little Books, Dr Seuss books and also any other books I come across as I am fossicking, and love to offer those I have doubled up on to other families at a decent price. So that they can pass on a love of reading to their children.  The majority of the children's books I am selling will reside here on the website until they find a new home.

Feel free to message me if you would like a particular book, as I go out looking as often as I can, which also preserves my sanity!

Please drop in often, as I try to list new titles on a regular basis.

regards Helen

Please note that I have recently re-opened my store after a 3 year overseas posting with a recent local move as well, so it may take sometime to locate your book! Please be patient, as it will reach you!
