As part of the World Book Night 2011 Million Book Giveaway, I will be giving away 11 copies of Life of Pi by Yann Martel for World Book Night via this blog.
Life of Pi is the thrilling story of Pi, a young indian boy who survives a ship wreck, only to find himself stranded on a life boat with an injured zebra, an orangutang, a hyena and a hungry bengal tiger. What follows is a strange and maginficent tale of survival and an incredible relationship between a young boy and the tiger. I gave this to my boyfriend, who does not enjoy reading, while we were away from each other during the university summer break and he loved it. I think that says more than the fact that it won the Man Booker Prize.
Unfortunately, due to the risk of bankrupting myself in postage costs, I will only be able to send one of the eleven books internationally- this will be via surface mail. The other ten books I will send via second class post to winners in the UK. The books will be sent on a first come, first served basis to those who send their full name and postal address to email@example.com .
Best of luck!
I applaud what you’re doing. World Book Night is a fabulous initiative. I am blessed with a full bookshelf, so I won’t be applying for one of the free ones – but plan to get involved with it next year. Hope it all goes well tonight.
Thanks kd, pass the message on to any friends who might be interested 🙂
What a great giveaway! If I’m lucky enough to win one of the copies, in the spirit of World Book Night I would like to pass it on again after I’ve read it so more people can enjoy it!
That’s fantastic Lindy, I love to see people getting into the spirit of world book night!
Nice blog. What could be better than reading and eating? As you see, The Side Trek agrees.

Thank you for your comment on my blog. Is the one international copy still available? I’d love to read this book!
