Tonight is World Book Night, and last night’s even in Trafalgar Square was a rousing success. Philip Pullman was one of many authors, actors and musicians who attended the event. He read out a passage from Northern Lights/The Golden Compass, which co-webmistress Jaya recorded.

In an interview he gave to the BBC, he described the event as a “wonderful idea.”

And good news for Canadian Sraffies! At the event, Margaret Atwood said that she hoped a similar event would be held in Toronto next year, providing there’s enough interest in it.

In honour of the first World Book Night (see our previous newspost on it), are having a DOUBLE GIVEAWAY.

For His Dark Materials fans
In the spirit of World Book Night, we’re requesting that you take this opportunity to read a book you might not otherwise read. So for sraffies, we’re giving away a World Book Night copy of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, by Mark Haddon.

For others
If you’ve not read His Dark Materials, we’d love to introduce you to it! We have a World Book Night copy of Northern Lights to give away.

World Book Night is to promote reading and to spread some literary love. If you win one of these books, please read it and then pass it on to somebody else so they too can be introduced to these two great works of fiction. Every World Book Night book has a unique ID number, so that it can be tracked via BookCrossing, so we hope to follow the books as they are passed from reader to reader.

This giveaway is open to everyone. To enter, simply send an e-mail to with the subject line “World Book Night Giveaway” and your name and the title of the book that you’d like in the e-mail. Good luck!

(Please note: one entry per person, the deadline for entries is 11:59pm GMT on the 12th of March)
