to the very lovely MacLehose Press, who were running a series of giveaways on Twitter recently. One was for “The Library of Unrequited Love” by Sophie Divry, and you had to tweet your favourite library and why – quite difficult to do in 140 characters!

It sounds fascinating, and ideal for a very bookish person like me – I’m looking forward to it, and thanks MacLehose Press! ๐Ÿ™‚
