World Book Night 2012

Well, the second World Book Night is nearly here (Monday 23rd April) and I’m due to collect my copies of this year’s gifting title: Mark Billingham’s SLEEPYHEAD from Kirkdale Bookshop in Sydenham.

SLEEPYHEAD was my first choice and I’m planning on gifting it to local Police Stations near to my home – the author recently did some drive-alongs for research with Croydon area Police, so it seemed to make sense.

Here’s my short review on We Love This Book.

My second choice was Stephen King’s MISERY, and I’ve also written a mini review for that here for We Love This Book.

And, recounting my experience of being involved in last year’s event – the gifting and attending the London launch event you can tune in to Radio 4 on Monday afternoon to listen to ‘One in a million’ with comments by me and others here.

Happy book giving.

Keith

  1. It doesn’t seem that long ago since last year’s World Book Night! :) Time flies!

    I hope the cops enjoy your gift.
