Brighton City Reads

Went along to the launch of Brighton City Reads last night - it really inspired me to read this year's book - The Book Thief.

It's such a 'novel' (geddit!) idea to get everyone in the city reading and sharing their ideas about a book. This year's choice is a crossover book (appeals to adults and youngsters) and, despite some heavy material, (Nazi Germany) is a very life affirming read. The idea is to read the book and pass it on to a friend, neighbour, relation, stranger, even a literate cat if you can find one, so they can read it/discuss it. They can then pass it on too...

Grab your copy of The Book Thief

So as part of the Brighton City Reads Festival VisitBrighton is offering an exclusive book for a booking offer, so visitors to the city can join in.

The first 500 people who confirm an accommodation booking through VisitBrighton either by telephone or online, for dates between 13th March and 23rd May, can collect a free copy of this year’s City Reads novel, The Book Thief, from the Brighton Visitor Information Centre (conditions apply).

Described by The New York Times as 'a novel of breathtaking scope, masterfully told.' The Book Thief is an international bestseller and must read.
