I’ve always loved books.
I can remember being really young and reading Naughty Amelia Jane by Enid Blyton and that was it, I was transported to a world where toys came awake when you went to sleep and I loved it.
Books have always been my escape, but now it’s into a world of glitz and glamour, intrigue and betrayal and maybe a bit of romance thrown in. There is nothing better than settling down with a good read and a cuppa, and when I got a Kindle as a birthday present I was really excited, a new book in an instant, no waiting.
But as much as I love a kindle for that reason, nothing beats the feel of a book in your hands, looking at the covers and reading a snippet of what’s inside to help you choose. Which means I still regularly buy books and have stacks.
So i’m doing this…
Over the summer, WHSmith is partnering with Marie Curie for THE BIG #READCYCLE.
From the 30th of July until the 27th of August, readers will be able to donate their pre-loved books at collection points located in WHSmith and Marie Curie stores across the country in exchange for a 25% discount voucher to spend on books at any WHSmith high street store.
The campaign is aiming to receive 30,000 donated books that will be sold in the 190 Marie Curie stores across the UK. The money raised will help Marie Curie to continue providing care for people living with a terminal illness and their families.
So start donating, and get the perfect excuse to buy some new books
