As much as I would like to send everybody a book... (I always forget when I do give aways that having to pick a winner is hard indeed!) I left it to atmospheric noise and came out with comment number 15, which is... Beata! Congratulations Beata, I hope you like the book.
And to everyone who commented, thank you for all your reading recommendations, so many! I love hearing about what people like to read. Someone I knew once asked that for his birthday, instead of any old present, that people buy him their favourite book. Lots of interesting new books and perhaps a little insight into friends and family too. I thought that was a great idea. So I've written down all your recommendations and I'm off to the library tomorrow :) You all made my day.
