Present time

Some serious frivolity now…

Instead of hunting down amazing images and rooting around in archives last week, Amy Orringer at Hot Key Books has been putting together some equally inspiring present ideas for bookish friends and family.  Here’s the A World Between Us present guide, which brought a huge smile to my face.  Find out the name of the dress and where to get these gorgeous gifts here and do have a look at the other Hot Key titles too.  Any other suggestions?

If you’re between 12 and 17 and you’d like someone to give you a copy of A World Between Us, look no further than the Guardian Teen Book Club who have ten free copies to win this week.  You’ll need to move fast though – entries close at 5pm on Friday.  Spread the word and do join in the online discussions later this month!
