It's not book of the month any more so I can now reveal that Summer in Baden-Baden was our world cup super special prize trigger - and none of you literary folk noticed!
Had anyone e-mailed or phoned or spoken to us in the shop about the reasons for our May book of the month being Summer in Baden-Baden and whether this had anything to do with where England would be based in the build up to the World Cup they would have won a SPECTACULAR prize...(just imagine whatever you most desire - that was the prize you could have had! Don't you feel gutted?)
You have to be sharp in the indy bookselling came. I know I keep banging on about it but it's not just us - you can all be involved too...
So keep your wits about you and watch out for more "hidden" and "secret" prize-winning opportunities.
