    Thanks, I’d missed this. I’m definitely going to have to apply this year if only for the pleasure of giving everyone I know a copy of “Rivers of London’. Thank goodness they’ve gone for the first one in the series. Imagine trying to pick up half way though!

      I’ve done it before and I didn’t like the design of it. However, this year for the first time, I feel there is a book on there that I could champion for the purpose of this promotion. And the possibility of picking two back-ups. Alex, you have competition!

    I’d missed this. I applied last year but missed out. Will do so again this year – especially as Gorky Park is on list. I loved that book!

      I loved it in film. William Hurt. Aah. Planning on an application myself this year as I feel there is one I can champion for the cause!
