World Book Night- I'm in!!


Yesterday, I received an email saying that I will be one of the 20 000 books givers for World Book Night!!!

World Book Night is the biggest book giveaway ever! On March 5 2011, we will be giving away 1 000 000 books! If you want to learn more about it, visit the website here.

I have applied a few weeks ago, and along with a few questions, we had to choose 2 of the 25 titles that will be giving away. And I got chosen! They will send me 48 copies for me to give away to friends, family, or charities.

I got my first choice, Rachel's Holiday by Marian Keyes. I really like Marian Keyes, she is such a funny writer. I have not read her newest book yet, but I have read all the other ones and liked them. Along with Helen Fielding (Bridget Jones' serie), this is my favorite "chick lit" author, even though she is tackling more serious issues than just modern day relationships.

Rachel's Holiday is one of the books about the Walsh, a family packed with dysfunctional yet really lovable characters. Here is the excerpt:

‘How did it end up like this? Twenty-seven, unemployed, mistaken for a drug addict, in a treatment centre in the back arse of nowhere with an empty Valium bottle in my knickers . . .’

Meet Rachel Walsh. She has a pair of size 8 feet and such a fondness for recreational drugs that her family has forked out the cash for a spell in Cloisters – Dublin’s answer to the Betty Ford Clinic. She’s only agreed to her incarceration because she’s heard that rehab is wall-to-wall jacuzzis, gymnasiums and rock stars going tepid turkey – and it’s about time she had a holiday.
But what Rachel doesn’t count on are the toe-curling embarrassments heaped on her by family and group therapy, the dearth of sex, drugs and rock’n’roll – and missing Luke, her ex. What kind of a new start in life is this?

If you would like a copy of the book, and will be in London on March 5, please, leave me a message/email me and we could arrange something!

EDIT: If you would like a book and you live in the UK, I can mail it to you, just send me an email! Cheers!
