Spread the Word – World Book Day – The Shortlist

The Spread the Word shortlist is out. This is part of World Book Day, and the 100 books to talk about have been whittled down to the last ten as voted for by vistors to the site. You can vote until Feb 27th for the winner.

One of the books on the longlist that didn’t make it through to the shortlist but which I particularly enjoyed last year was The Glassblower of Murano by Marina Fiorato. It was one of the first I reviewed on my blog here.

In fact, Marina will be visiting Mostly Books, my local prize-winning indie bookshop, in Abingdon next Thursday (Feb 26th) at 7.30pm.

Also there that evening will be Bethan Roberts another Spread the Word longlisted author whom I’ve not read yet …

It is a ticketed event as space is limited, so contact the bookshop if you want to come.
