World Book Night 2012

I’m just writing reference numbers into the 24 copies of Pride and Prejudice that I’ll be giving away tomorrow as part of World Book Night – www.worldbooknight.org

I’m planning to leave 2 or 3 copies with the fitting room attendants in various clothes shops in Croydon – Pride and Prejudice is about young women at the turning point of their lives, desperate to find a secure future – I hope the women who find my copies of the book will read it and be grateful for the choices we have now that didn’t exist in Regency England. I hope they’ll love the timeless characters, the warmth & wit of Jane Austen, and be moved to try her other books.

These photos were taken last year, as I was giving out copies of The Spy Who Came In From The Cold – here are two new book finders:
