World Book Night

Just a quick post to wish everyone Happy World Book Night.

Today I was giving out copies of How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff which is one of my favourite books.



I dropped a few into staff pigeon holes in the morning and then got some kids I teach to come up to my room at lunch time (without telling them why) then gave them all copies of How I Live How along with their choice of whatever random books I had laying around at home that I was going to find a new home for. Very excited kiddies indeed which was lovely. Something I might need to do more of.

Oh, you've just reminded me that I really want to read How I Live Now! Hopefully, it's available in my school library :)

I hope they all enjoy it! I applied to be a give but rather late and so didn't get any of my choices.

A brilliant book to give away. Sounds like you made a few people's day!
