So here we go with week two of A Summer Reading #ByBook! We’re really enjoying it so far, are you? And I’ve also been totally inspired – a few of the featured summer Reading titles *may* have fallen into my kindle when I wasn’t looking (Where My Heart Used To Beat, The Beach, The Night Manager (finally – yes, I’m probably the only grown up on the planet who’s never read a John Le Carré, but I’m on it now…), The Girls…)
So have you seen this lovely lovely idea by Penguin? That no matter where you are, a book will always take you somewhere else. Any reader knows that, of course, but this sun-filled bright shiny idea has opened up a whole raft of new books for me to explore; and there’s some for everyone, from the earliest of readers up.
We’re properly taken with it – take a look at the video below (spot the kid’s face at 14 seconds in. A book did that! A BOOK!)
So to celebrate a summer of travelling #ByBook we’re excited to offer you the chance to win not one but FOUR different Penguin Summer Reading #ByBook bumper bundles this August.
Midday every Monday we’ll announce a new bundle as we close last week’s, and each week will have a different theme with different prizes; and all will have something for everyone!
This week we’ve got paper treasures for the pre-teens. Where would they be without some Roald Dahl? It has to be the BFG, of course (have you seen the film yet? isn’t it wonderful?). Plus there’s the tweens bookshelf essential, the latest Diary of a Wimpy Kid title.
plus for the grown ups there’s Go Set A Watchman (I haven’t tried it yet, I love Mockingbird too much to risk it yet) plus The Night Manager. And of course there’s the super-want classic Penguin notebook and tote bag.
One lucky winner will win the whole bundle next Monday – simply use the widgety box below, add your details, and you’re in to win. Closing date is the 22nd August (ready for week 3 to begin!) – good luck :)
