As part of World Book Night (which, although grandly titled, was, this year, just in the UK) Fiona volunteered to give away 48 copies of one of her favorite books. In total, volunteers gave away one million books across the UK to encourage people to read something new, or in many cases just to read.
We've got one copy of Alexander Masters' Stuart: A Life Backwards left, and we'd like to give it to one of you.
Stuart is the real life hero of this story, a homeless person that Masters meets and decides to tell the story of. Stuart advises Alex to tell the story backwards, and this book is the result, although it's as much about their relationship as about Stuart's life. It's moving, and funny and sometimes heartbreaking. I read it a couple of years ago when a friend recommended it and couldn't put it down.
If you'd like to be entered into the draw to receive our last copy of this World Book Night edition of this fantastic true story, please leave a comment below (we're happy to ship it to wherever you live). I'll pull a name out of the hat a week today.
In other news, we've added a page called How you can help us - any of these things would be wonderful, but we are also very happy for you to be here and benefit without ever hearing from you. Keep writing the small stones!
The first is to share the word about our work. Tell your friends about writing small stones, or Fiona's free e-book, or our free community.
The second is to buy our book, 'pay attention: a river of stones', or check out ouron-line e-courses or Fiona's other books.
The third is to put a few coins in our tip jar by using the Paypal button below. Every little counts.
