News from inside

We're very pleased that we'll be getting regular feedback from the Prison Reading Groups that we support. Here's a report from a women's prison: "Our first feedback is on Michelle Paver’s Dark Matter. Everyone got very enthusiastic about this story of creepy goings-on during an expedition to the arctic in the 1930s. Paver gets the atmosphere so powerfully; partly, we thought, because the voice of the narrator is so convincing. Then there are the specific details – such as what they eat and even the plates they eat it off –which all help to take you into this extraordinary world. Very scary!"
Thanks so much for writing in. We love to hear more about where the books are going.  Now return to Give a Book.

  1. It's mysterious where books are going however it's a nice blog to read. There was a time when I read so many books but after starting my masters I just read my course books because I don't have time but I want help with the dissertation as it's been so hectic.
