This year for World Book Night I have 18 Copies of The Martian by Andy Weir to give away. I’ve failed so far as I’ve been at home all day looking after my 9 week old, but hopefully I’ll do better over the coming days!
I haven’t had a chance to read it yet as I only picked up my books a couple of days ago, but the bookseller at my collection point said it’s a great book for men, so maybe I’ll try to target men for my giveaways.
I love World Book Night! It’s a fantastic idea and great to be a part of it.
Sorry I’ve been a bit quiet over the past week, I’ve been away. One of the places I went was YALC, Malorie Blackman’s first YA lit con, in Earls Court this weekend. This is my haul of (mostly) free books from the convention. I’ll do a blog post telling you more about the convention when I get the chance.
I’ve been very quiet this weekend because I have been totally engrossed in A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness. I really do not want to go to work tomorrow because I need to finish reading it!
I finished reading this collection of short stories tonight. It was a NetGalley ARC from Penguin so I can’t publish my full review until next Thursday (a week before the publishing date: 3 July 2014). But here’s a 10 word preview of my review:
Story collection about miserable loser men and messed up relationships.
My Hay tickets – can’t wait!
