World Book Night- Cloud Atlas invides Abingdon

Take a walk around Abingdon (Oxfordshire, UK) today and you might just find a copy or two of 'Cloud Atlas' by David Mitchell. No, they are not multiplying alone- they are on a journey sponsored by World Book Night.

I was lucky enough to be one of the people chosen to give away 48 copies of Cloud Atlas as part of World Book Night. The aim- to encourage more reading. In order to reach the largest number of non-readers possible I decided to wild release most of my books. This meant  packaging them in bags, adding post-it-notes on the front cover proclaiming messages such as 'I'm Free', 'I'm A Travelling Book' and 'Please Take Me Home', and then leaving them scattered around my local town for people to find.

In Abingdon today? Why not have a little search, you never know what you may find! (And for those from further away, check out bookcrossing.com to find out if there are any wild books lurking near you).
