Woohoo! I'm a World Book Night Giver!
I'm delighted that I've been chosen as a World Book Night giver and the book I will be giving away is The Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella - a fabulous book by a fantastic author. So pleased to be able to give away copies of this book to my family and friends.
Firstly let me tell you a little more about World Book Night and then I'll tell you how you can win a copy of this wonderful book.
World Book Night is a celebration of reading and books which sees tens of thousands of people gift books within their communities to spread the joy and love of reading on April 23. In 2012 World Book Night will be celebrated in the UK, Ireland, Germany and USA.
The site exists in order to celebrate books and to connect readers with one another. You can learn more about World Book Night itself, the 25 books and connect with other passionate readers.
To win a copy of The Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella , leave a comment telling me if you had a secret dreamworld and were a shopaholic, what would you buy. Can't wait to hear your experiences!
And finally... 25 books or 26 miles?
World Book Night's founder, Jamie Byng, will be running his first ever London marathon on April 22 (the day before World Book Night) to raise money for World Book Night and the Book Trade Charity (BTBS). Reading comes as naturally as breathing to Jamie, but running is a very different matter and, as World Book Night seeks to encourage those who don't regularly read to try it, what could be better than Jamie attempting something that takes him a long way beyond his comfort zone and raises vital money. Every penny World Book Night raises from Jamie's marathon will go towards the direct distribution of books after April 23 to those places, including prisons and sheltered housing, where it is hardest to reach prospective readers.
If you'd like to sponsor Jamie you can do so here or by texting WBNI12 followed by the amount you'd like to give to 70070.
