book shop?  As if, anyone reading this needed prompting!

Dovegreyreader brought this bag to my attention the other week. Lizzieeeeeee, it sang,  I was made for you!  I had to agree. I had placed an order before I’d finished my breakfast toast.

A mixup has, however, meant that I received more than I should have. I contacted Long Barn Books and Susan Hill kindly agreed to a blog giveaway.

So, if you are

a) in need of a sturdy canvas bag that proclaims your book addiction to the world

b) strong enough to carry it full of books – this one is holding a stack of my March acquisitions (currently 10 deep with plenty of space for another stack)

please put your name in comments and tell me the books that will fill it on your next shopping trip.

This competition is WORLDWIDE and I have two bags to give away. Winners to be chosen next Sunday.


Meanwhile, let’s send some sunshine to the winner of  A Time for Gifts #1.
