“with freedom, books, flowers, and the moon, who could not be happy?”

Let us tell you a little story.

Secret Book Stuff is a kindness project to spread the love of literature and create a little more magic in the world, started in 2017 by Amy, a writer and bibliophile based in Newcastle, Australia. With almost a thousand books adorning every corner and crevasse of her home, she decided it was time to pass those well-loved pages to others. She started wrapping her own pre-loved books in eco materials and dropping them at cafes, bus stops, hospitals, schools, and door steps.

Enter Laura, a writer and poet drowning in her own teetering pile of books. It wasn’t long before Secret Book Stuff caught her eye.

Long story short, Laura loved books. Amy loved books. Suddenly, they fell in love... and decided to combine their book collection and run Secret Book Stuff together.

We are Amy and Laura: writers, bibliophiles, and partners in (book-related) crime. Between us, we have 1,611 books, but check in with us tomorrow and there’ll probably be more. #notsorry
