Helen Thomas


Helen’s first job was a Saturday assistant in a bookshop where she developed a love for promoting books and reading and from there has never looked back. Prior to setting up BookSpace with her co-Director Rachel Van Riel, Helen was Head of Marketing for a large bookstore chain. At BookSpace Helen is responsible for the day to day running of the company and enjoys all aspects from managing the office and warehouse to forward planning and new product development. Outside of work Helen is at her happiest at home especially when it’s busy with lots of family and friends.

Favourite BookSpace product and why:

It has to be the Reading Hideway because we always get such positive feedback from schools, children love it and it puts books and reading in the spotlight.
