I did it!
Armed with twenty copies of Pride and Prejudice, I went to the local hospital and stood by the parking machine at visiting time. As I was short of time my husband came with me to help. He never even got out of the car as I was handing out free copies of Jane Austen’s masterpiece hand over fist. He said I was back in the car ready to go home in less than ten minutes. What an easy volunteering role!
(If you don’t know what I’m talking about, please see previous post in library category, ‘It is more blessed to give than to recieve’. World Book Night is all about giving away lovely new books supplied by certain publishers for the event. I volunteered to be a giver again this year.)
It was, once again, a wonderful experience and I’d encourage anyone interested to get involved.
Once again, Happy World Book Night!
