(PRWEB UK) 7 January 2014
All kinds of resolutions will have been made over the past few days, not least for many that of discovering, or re-discovering, the joy of reading.
That's why, for its latest competition The Book People, the leading specialist in bringing the best selection of new books to people via the internet, is offering a chance for anyone involved in the running of a local book club to win a set of copies of the debut novel by Fiona McFarlane to kick-start both existing and new members' reading resolutions for 2014.
The discount books website is offering one lucky book club member the chance to win 13 copies of this book, to be shared among their literature-loving friends, and possibly act as a suitable kick-starter to discovering a new year full of surprises for literature-lovers.
The Night Guest has been hugely well received on release, not only in the author's native Australia, but also in America, with reviewers on Goodreads.com calling it "haunting", and likening it to the work of Alfred Hitchcock.
The discerning team at TheBookPeople.co.uk believe this makes it a great way for anyone who runs a reading club, whatever its size, to help new members learn more about the joys of reading as part of a like-minded group of people, and thereby engage with the delight of reading, as something which can be enjoyed not just as a lone pursuit, but also as a means of participating in a social activity which can open doors to great new friendships.
"We believe Fiona McFarlane's debut novel is a brilliant introduction to anyone who is looking to either discover or re-discover the incredible excitement and fun which can be had from reading," said Ryan Barham, editor at The Book People.
"So in an effort to get people up and down the UK talking about what they love most about books, we'll give away a set of copies of this powerful psychological tale to the book club whose members send us the best reasons why they think they should win this fantastic prize."
Entries will be published on TheBookPeople.co.uk, and the members of the lucky club which wins the prize will be able to provide their own review of the book after reading and discussing it.*
Anyone who would like to win 13 copies of The Night Guest for their book club should simply email Social(at)thebookpeople(dot)co(dot)uk, giving the reasons why they think their club should win this sought-after prize, by the closing date of Friday, January 31.
