World Book Night

Yes, tonight is World Book Night - and once again, I've been lucky enough to be given some books to give away :)


I'll be handing some out in my local area, just as I did last year - wandering into local shops and businesses, offering copies to all and sundry - it's OK, I'm used to funny looks.... ;)


But I'd also love to send some out to any of you who haven't ever read Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. It's one of my favourite books, and I'd love to share it with you!

Would you like a copy? Just let me know in the comments that you've never read this book but would like to, and I'll see what I can do :) I can't promise to send you all a copy as it does depend on how many people respond, but I'll do my best! I'll let you know on Friday if I'll be sending one to you, and I'll request addresses as necessary then, too.

Happy World Book Night! :)

How fun for you that you get to hand out books! I think it is a job I would enjoy thoroughly.

One of my all time fave books Mel - I'd love the chance to re-read it! Just preparing my WBN post myself before hosting a WBN evening for my bookclub!

I don't think I've ever read P&P...least I don't remember reading it anyway :S. If you have any spare, I'd love a copy.
Hope u manage to hand out lots today.

Jen said...

Yes please Mel - Like jimjams - its is many years since I read it and I would love the opportunity to re-read it. Our Head of English gave out books today too - to some of our Sixth formers - all chosen by their peers. Thanks

Good for you, giving away books. I've read and reread P&P so I don't need another copy thanks

Scrappi Sandi said...

I already have the complete works of Jane Austen & P&P has to my favourite too! How great to be in a position to hand out such a desirable read to an unsuspecting publc!! Enjoy!! :D

I'm sure I have a copy lurking unread on my shelves - I have a WBN giveaway on my blog too.

I have never read this--which is surprising. And I am going to attempt it at some point, I am sure, because I really want to read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies...And because I am the sort who reads a book before she sees the movie and I am being denied Mr. Firth by NOT reading this... LOL.

ComfyMom~Stacey said...

I've read it. I like the version with zombies better though. :)

Jo.C said...

Good luck with it - don't add me as I have it already but if I need any advice on giving out I may ask. It is quite daunting. Glad I don't have to give out 48 like last year :0)
Laughing because our photos are quite similar.

I think World Book Night is the best idea! I've already read Pride and Prejudice, so don't put me in the draw.

furrypig said...

I have already read this book but not fir ages so I think I should pass and let someone else have a chance. Well done on being a WBN giver again sending hugs your way xxx

I've got it thanks, but just wanted to comment on your wonderful generosity and kindness in handing them out!

Oooo, 2 years in a row, well done Melsh! If theres one spare could I have it please, I havent read p&p before.

Melissa said...

This is a great read - I've read it a few times & already own a copy. Have fun sharing these!

Ginger said...

I have this one downloaded Mel, I've never read it but know the movie :)
I sent you an email, it might be in your spam. I'm wondering if you are interested in the next Mail Art Exchange? It will be the week of May 7th and I will need to know in the next couple days :) Thanks!
