Because I love reading, I volunteered to share my passion with the people of Bude. Thus, I was allocated 24 copies of the special World Book Night 2012 edition of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, and I have them all to give away, no strings attached, by April 23rd. I collected the books this morning from Bude Library and One Stop Shop, so thanks to the staff there for taking delivery of them for me. 

If you love books but can't often afford to buy them, feel free to request one. If you don't like reading much, but will give it a go with a free book, get in touch. If you saw Colin Firth as Darcy on TV and enjoyed it, but have never felt confident enough to read a classic, get in touch. Austen is fabulously funny, and well worth a look. And you've nothing to lose if you don't like it, as you can just pass it on to someone else!

So, a million books are being given away nationally on 23rd April.  I would love to give my 24 away to spread the joy and love of reading. I have one taker already, so we're down to 23. You can enjoy the book, then pass it on - you'll remember the story once you've read it. All I ask is that you read and keep, give or pass on to as many people as possible. There are thousands more free books in the library, of course.

Please inbox me your name/email ( and I can arrange to deliver some time on Monday or for a convenient collection point in Bude. Now, it's not often you get something for nothing, so first come, first served on the 23 remaining free books.......

    There are still free copies of Pride & Prejudice available as not everyone collected theirs. As they are cluttering up the reception desk at the Neetside Centre, it is now a free for all, so please call in and collect one if you're passing and want one!!

    The books are at Neetside or have been dropped off accordingly, folks. Old School, sorry about communication problem at Neetside, but that's now resolved and they will hold the book for you until next Saturday :-)

    Yes, know that feeling. Well, 2 suggestions Old School, as I'm not sure what Neetside staffing is like at weekends. One is that you email me an address so I can post it through your door, or I could ask the lovely Jen at G's if she will hold a copy for you. She's definitely open on Saturdays! email is Let me know your preference. Thanks.
