Katarina Bivald grew up working part-time in a bookshop. Today she lives outside of Stockholm, Sweden, with her sister and as many bookshelves she can get by her. She'scurrently trying to persuade her sister that having a shelf for winter jackets and shoes is completely unneccessary. There should be enough space for a book shelf or two instead. Limited success so far. Apparantly, her sister is also stubbornly refusing to even discuss using the bath room to store books.

Katarina Bivald sometimes claims that she still hasn't decided whether she prefer books or people but, as we all know, people are a non-starter. Even if you do like them, they're better in books. Only possible problem: reading a great book and having noone to recommend it to.

I have to think of my own entertainment, and I like surprises myself."

I like to think that the same is true of setting. One of the best thing about reading is how it allows you to travel in your mind, and I like to think writing should be the same. Why write about something you know or the place where you already are?

So I chose Iowa precisely because I didn't know anything about it, except that it once had a library cat named Dewey Readmore Books. And after all, how much more do you need to know to love a place?(less)

An homage to English literature, English bookshops, and England herself

Helen Hanff, she of 84, Charing Cross Road, once said that everyone goes to London looking for their very own version of it, and that everyone finds exactly the London they were looking for. I have always gone there in search of books, literary history, and stories. Like Helen Hanff, I found precisely the London I was looking for. On my first visit to Foyles, when I was fourteen years old, I bough

“For as long as she could remember, she had thought that autumn air went well with books, that the two both somehow belonged with blankets, comfortable armchairs, and big cups of coffee or tea.”
Katarina Bivald, The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend

“Can you smell it? The scent of new books. Unread adventures. Friends you haven't met yet, hours of magical escapism awaiting you.”
Katarina Bivald, The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend
tags: books

“People were strange like that. They could be completely uninterested in you, but the moment you picked up a book, you were the one being rude.”
Katarina Bivald, The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend
