Today, as you must all know by now, is the day when one million books will be given away free, as part of World Book Night, by enthusiastic individuals who got themselves organised months ago and signed up for the project. Middleagedad was one of these efficient souls, and we now have 48 copies of C J Sansom’s Dissolution to hand out to friends and family (thank goodness for the party, see below post) .
It’s a fabulous idea, a reading revolution, according to the blurb and and in our house at least, it’s nice to see a book delivered by a way other than Amazon, however attractive the prices and free delivery scheme. M.A.D has very kindly offered me four copies to give away on the blog, so would anyone like one? As one critic succinctly wrote, ‘It’s a who-dunnit, a historical novel with something to say about racism, disability and the role of women in the 1530s’. Please leave a comment below if you would, the best four will find their books in the post on Monday.
