Busy with Books!

It’s been busy, busy, busy up here! So much to do before the end of the semester, but the caffeine is pulling me through.

Attended the announcement of the Lancashire Book of the Year shortlist on Friday. A really excellent morning, and in case you hadn’t heard, these were the books that made it:

  1. The Hunting Ground, Cliff McNish
  2. Shadows on the Moon, Zoe Marriott
  3. My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece, Annabel Pitcher
  4. People’s Republic, Robert Muchamore
  5. The Spook’s Destiny, Joseph Delaney
  6. The Dead, Charlie Higson
  7. Emerald, Karen Wallace
  8. He’s After Me, Chris Higgins
  9. Boys Don’t Cry, Malorie Blackman
  10. 0.4, Mike Lancaster

It’s a really strong and varied list, and I’m looking forward to reading them! Cliff McNish was a childhood favourite of mine, so my eyes sparkled when they announced it, hehe.

Very excited to be going to the London Book Fair in April. Tickets book, accommodation sorted: anyone else going to be there?

So, in work yesterday we had a little dress up (any excuse) for a late World Book Day celebration. We had sweets, drawing, quizzes, and free books! A fabulous day all around, and I’m still shaking slightly from my sugar-high… Follow us on Twitter @WaterstonesBpl!

Excuse me whilst I get back in bed and watch soppy films.
