What’s The Book Gossip?

I seem to have been inundated with book news this week via my email so I thought I would share it with you.
Firstly news of a couple of competitions that might interest you.
Random House Children’s Publishing have a fabulous competition running to celebrate the upcoming film Seventh Son, which is an adaption of the first book in the Spook’s Apprentice series by Joseph Delaney.
There are 11 books in the series and two more are planned for 2013 including the final boo. The competition is to win 5 cinema tickets to see Seventh Son  for you and your friends including vouchers for food.
All you have to do is:
Do all of this by the end of August and your name will be entered into the prize draw. Easy peasy. Especially if you have read them all already. You can update Random House with your progress by using the hashtag #SPOOKS  on Twitter.
