I’m currently reading Sarah Waters, The Fingersmith which a twitter friend sent to me, courtesy of World Book Night.
I think the concept behind World Book Night is genius. The objective? Get more people to read. How? Hand out books to passionate readers, then let them pass them on to people of their choice. When the people of choice finish reading the book, they can log it and pass it on again. This is real genius and hopefully more people will appreciate the love of reading as a result.
I am certainly really excited to have one of these books. I can’t wait to finish it (not only because the story and the writing is fantastic) but because I can’t wait to create a log, the book’s own alter ego that I can check up with in months (and maybe years) to come. And I’m really looking forward to doing so.
