World Book Night Along The Oxford Canal

What a great afternoon travelling down the Oxford Canal and taking part in World Book Night at the same time. I had 48 copies of of The Reluctant Fundamentalist to give away and I wanted to do it in an area that was a little different, along the Oxford Canal I decided. When I was telling my friend, Tucker who is pictured giving a book away, he said lets do it on the water from my boat, so we did.

Now to the totally random event that happened while giving our books away. We gave our books away to people on the boats and walkers, one of those walkers just happened to be Mark Haddon, who's novel The Curious Incident of The Dog In The Night was one of the books that was also being given away tonight. He said hello and even posted a photo saying that he had seen us on his website. More photo's here, including the one we took from the boat of Mark Haddon.

Thanks for the book - didn't realise it was you until I read your blog - we were out walking with my elder daughter along the canal.
