Our First Competition



Welcome everyone to the book bundles first competition/book giveaway. We are really excited!

The prize of our competition is a signed copy of 'Crossed Wires', the most recent book by Rosy Thornton. Inspired by the Classics, Rosy started her own writing career, first with 'More than love letters' and then 'Hearts and minds'. In april 2009, Crossed Wires came out on paperback and has been quite a hit with 'Varsity' calling it "more than just a bit of light relief in the form of chick-lit; it is a heart-warming fairytale of real life with a happy ever after".
Crossed Wires is the story of Peter, a Cambridge geography don who crashes his car into a tree stump when swerving to avoid a cat, and Mina, the girl at the Sheffield call centre who deals with his insurance claim. It tracks their parallel lives, as well those of their families - because both Peter and Mina are single parents.

An old-fashioned fairy tale of love across the class divide, it is also a book about the small joys and tribulations of parenthood; about one-ness and two-ness; about symmetry and coincidence; about the things which separate us and the things which bring us together.

It is a story, in fact, of the accidents of geography.

So if you want a feel good novel with a dash of romance, signed by the author, then all you have to do is leave a comment on this post, with an email/link so that we can get in contact with you! The winner will be randomly chosen from the comments left.

CLOSING DATE: 12TH JULY.

GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!!

Interesting idea. The focus on geography kind of reminds me of this book The Selected Works of T.S. Spivet that came out not too long ago. That was more cartography than geography, but still.

Enter me in! :D I'm all for free books.
