World Book Night 2011: A million reasons to read (and share or give) a book…

 This is one of the 25 books to be distributed on the 5th March 2011 during the World Book Night celebration in United Kingdom. Im fortunate to be one of the book-givers and distributing 48 copies of Fingersmith by Sarah Waters.

About the Project: World Book Night is a celebration of great writing and the power of books and the pleasures of reading. This book is one of 40,000 copies printed of each of the 25 brilliant titles selected for World Book Night 2011. That’s 1,000,000 books to be read and enjoyed and then shared. Be part of the reading revolution.

About the Book: London 1862. Sue Trinder, orphaned at birth, grows up among petty thieves – fingersmiths – under the rough but loving care of Mrs Sucksby and her “family”. But for the moment she draws breath, Sue’s fate is linked to that of another orphan growing up in a gloomy mansion not too many miles away.
