WORLD BOOK NIGHT & A GIVEAWAY WINNER.

My asthma having worsened .... again, I narrowly missed another trip to hospital and as such I'm afraid I didn't get to celebrate World Book Night as I hoped but the reports are that all went swimmingly with all of the official World Book Night reads having found new homes along with well over half the hundred or so books I had sent.

Unable to keep all of the books I receive for review, many of them go to fellow readers including family and friends but with several boxes full in a cupboard I decided this year to donate them to a good cause and what better cause than one that promotes not only reading but hopefully the love of books? So, on that note many thanks to all of the publishers and authors from whom I have received books. Not only has it been a honour to read and review them but who knows they may have gone onto inspire someone who wouldn't normally pick up a book to do so.

Anyway ...


Onto the winners for my recent 7th Blogoversary giveaway.  My thanks to everyone for your friendship and support. 

The copy of Alistair Grim's Odditorium by Gregory Funaro goes to ....

Natasha Hill.

Whilst the copy of Dancing To The Flute by Manisha Jolie Amin goes to ....

Kelly.

Well done ladies, a copy of your chosen book will be with you soon.

First of all... I'm rather concerned about your health. I pray you can soon knock out that infection or whatever is causing your asthma to keep flaring up. I think I can safely say we ALL want you to get well quickly.

I am very excited to be a winner in your give-away. Yay! And while I'm pleased that you offered these two in your contest, I think it's even better what you chose to do with so many others. It sounds like a wonderful cause.

Thanks again and I look forward to reading and reviewing my win.

Sorry you haven't been feeling well lately but hope you're on the upswing now.
Congrats on 7 years of blogging!! I have to confess that I completely missed WBN this year. I guess I wasn't paying attention...

I'm sorry about your asthma; that's awful you almost ended up at the hospital! I hope you start to feel better. That's great that World Book Night went well, even if you weren't able to take part because of illness.

Congrats to the winners! Enjoy!
