I've only just seen this lovely, wonderful idea from Nicola Morgan to celebrate World Book Night TOMORROW! 5th March.
Buy a book, preferably from a local bookstore, inscribe it: "Given in the spirit of World Book Night, March 5th 2011 and bought from [insert name of shop] - please enjoy and tell people about it." and give it to someone. Your mum, your mate, your child, or even some random stranger in the street.
What a lovely and generous idea. We're all writers which means we all love reading. Let's pass a little of that love on to someone else, tomorrow. I have friends visiting for the weekend. I think I'll buy them a copy of Diamonds and Pearls and thereby do even more good by raising money for a breast cancer charity.
Come on, join in!
