Who am I

Hello dear book friends. My name is Giorgia. I'm from Italy but a few years ago I moved to Switzerland. I have traveled a lot not only for holiday trips but also to study new languages. Thanks to language study trips I had some wonderful experiences. The most wonderful of them was to meet a wonderful man, now my husband. Now, after years of studying, I can speak English, German, French, a bit Spanish and of course Italian. Someday I really want to learn Japanese. Until then I would like to deepen my knowledge of the Spanish language.

Reading, drawing, traveling to learn new languages and cultures are my passion. I admire books the feeling they give me, how they look and feel. From time to time I also like to play little video games.

I love writing and I am an aspiring writer, but at the moment I am focused on my small business and I try to do my best to create unique products and handmade items! I hope to make people happy when they buy the Sphere book box.

What am I doing

In 2020, I have created a bookstagram account and I have become part of this beautiful community! Before having this account, I always followed other bookstagramers with my private account and I always thought it would be great to have so many books and to be able to talk about them with others and above all to exchange ideas and advice.

I've always loved reading! So one day I decided to create a Bookstagram account. That really fascinated me! I already knew the book box companies and always thought it would be a dream to be able to do something like this professionally. It seemed impossible. However, after so much time and work, I can finally start selling book boxes. It feels like my dream is coming true!

I thank my family who always support me morally and encourage me. And to all of you who support me and always send me wonderful messages, I am enormously grateful to you!
