It all started off because of her LJ where she mentioned that selected Starbucks branches have free introductory copies of various books to give away, as part of the National Year of Reading campaign. I ran up to my Starbucks on Piccadilly but they didn't have any copies of these so I came back to the office and rang up their head office to find out which branches had them in stock.
I got to chat with the most amazingly helpful chap who listened to me witter on about books, Cassandra Clare, the site etc. and somewhere along the line he decided that the easiest way to shut me up was to send me whatever I wanted. So behold this morning I received bucket load of book related swagg!
We have taster copies of the following three books, all published by the amazing Walker Books:
- The Knife of Never Letting Go, by Patrick Ness
- City of Ashes, by Cassandra Clare
- The Penalty, by Mal Peet
Please email me over at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you a copy of each of these, along with the amazing postcard advertising Kat Richardson's book Underground, illustrated by the the talented Chris McGrath.
I do have a limited amount of these to send out - so please note that it will be a first come, first served basis. But please, I don't want to not send these out, so even if you are in the outer reaches of Mongolia, I'm prepared to post them onto you for reading enjoyment.
