World Book Day 2013: 7th March

Yesterday was World Book Day 2013; a celebration of children's reading, books, and authors. Every year, millions of book tokens are given away to under 18s so that they can come together to enjoy the act of browsing for books, buying them, and enjoying them at home.

The vouchers can be used to buy one of eight specially selected books, or they can be exchanged for a £1 discount on a different book of their choice.

So, which one would you go for? Leave a comment with your choice and your reason, and one name picked at random will receive a signed (by me) copy of the Brazen Snake Cold Feet anthology. My story, Miles to Go, is just one of the short stories included.
