World Book Day and a Giveaway
It's World Book Day on Thursday, 4 March 2010 and it is a day to promote, share and enjoy the pleasure of reading books. This year sees events taking place in various areas around the UK. You can visit the World Book Day website for a list of events or check out your library, favourite bookstore and local newspaper for additional events, promotions and talks.
To celebrate World Book Day, and in anticipation of the next book in this series to be published in July, I am giving away a brand new, unread hardback by one of my favourite writers, Alexander McCall Smith. The book is The Unbearable Lightness of Scones and is the fifth instalment in the 44 Scotland Street series.

Whether you're a McCall Smith fan, or McCall Smith curious, please feel free to enter your name in the draw by leaving a comment on this post. I am happy to post anywhere in the world. This draw is open until the end of Friday, 5 March 2010 (UK time). The winner will be drawn from a hat and announced on Saturday, 6 March 2010. Good luck!
