The Big Read

Excitement is mounting in library land as the results of the Swansea Big Read are due to be announced tomorrow! I must say, I lost interest a bit once the top 10 was announced as I didn't really like any of the books on the list. My personal favourite, Alice Sebold's "The Lovely Bones" narrowly missed getting into the top 10 which is dominated by children's books and so-called crossover titles. Not that I mind children's books, but where was the seminal "Mog's Bad Thing"?

OK -- yes it's not the Booker or the DT Prize but it has encouraged people in Swansea to try to make reading part of their lives. The event in the Quadrant with the TARDIS brought out the dads and lads .. well done Swansea libraries for such a imaginative project

A fab project providing more promotion of books and reading and more books people want to read. Well done everyone.
