World book night
In case you’ve missed all the press coverage on this event, here’s the premise in brief:
1,000,000 books are to be given away by 20,000 book lovers on Saturday 5th March. 35 books have been chosen, from which you can choose the book you would like to give away to friends, colleagues, reluctant readers etc.
To apply to be one of the 20,000 who will be given 48 books to distribute, you must fill in the form on the World Book Night website here: World Book Night application form before 9am on Tuesday 4th January 2011.
Incidentally, my choice is Life of Pi by Yann Martel, which I thoroughly enjoyed reading this year and intend to read again with a full stomach on Christmas Day.
