A Novel Idea

I was quite taken with this Novel Idea Vending machine at our gate in Heathrow. The brainchild of Irish booksellers, it vends the top 24 bestsellers complete with a gift box and bookmark. Clever and better than cheetos!

MQ contributor Julianna Baggott's new program Kids In Need- Books In Deed is bringing free books and author visits to underprivileged schools. Schools sign up to sponsor a write-a-thon and the money raised will bring books and authors to kids who need them most. You can also simply give a donation. To sign up for more info, send an email stating whether you are a school in need or possibly a write-a-thon school indeed or someone who's interested in supporting the program.
