Win a copy of Hand Me Down World by Lloyd Jones

The BookDepository

Hand Me Down World is the new book from Lloyd Jones, the best–selling author of Mister Pip. It will be released in the UK on the 11th November, but I have
10 limited edition copies to give away to readers of my blog.

These special books each have a unique identifier which enables you to log onto the Hand Me Down World Website. The idea is that each lucky recipient of the book will read it, leave their thoughts on the website and then hand it onto someone else. The journey of each book will be mapped and so the globe will hopefully become criss-crossed with the paths that copies of this book have made.

If you’d like to know a bit more about Hand Me Down World then I highly recommend that you watch this short video in which Lloyd Jones explains the plot and how he came to write it.

For a chance to read this book before its publication, please leave a comment below before 11am GMT on Friday 8th October.

This giveaway is open INTERNATIONALLY!!

Winners will be chosen at random and revealed on this blog shortly after the closing date.

Good Luck!
