Behind door #1, a copy of every book we’ve published in the last two months!
So Christmas is here. And what better way to celebrate than with a bookish advent calendar?
So every day we’ll be giving away a book or book-related gift. Behind every door is something different, so keep an eye out on our website and our Twitter for new and exciting prizes each day until Christmas.
Behind the first door, we’re giving away a copy of every book we’ve published in November and December this year. You have until midnight tonight to enter with the winner to be announced on Wednesday morning… where we’ll open another door and give away another wonderful prize.
If you’ve been barking up the wrong tree at dinner parties, you can let Hubert van den Bergh and Thomas W. Hodgkinson show you How to Sound Cultured (‘Damn, all my cheating secrets revealed. In book form’ Stephen Fry). For more dinner party ammo, there’s the ultimate science quiz book, How Many Moons Does the Earth Have? by Brian Clegg.
There’s a fantastic biography of a 19th-century Parisian courtesan who harbours an incredible secret in The Mistress of Paris by Catherine Hewitt and for the Gardens and Antiques lovers in your life, there’s Allum’s Antiques Almanac 2016 from BBC Antiques Roadshow specialist Marc Allum and The Sceptical Gardener from the Telegraph’s gardening expert Ken Thompson.
Brand new this month from sports writer Luca Caioli is the greatest rivalry in football’s history, Messi vs Ronaldo. Two of the world’s greatest ever players compared and contrasted in this wonderful new book. And finally, new in paperback we have a inspiring tale of survival during World War Two, Beyond the Call by Lee Trimble with Jeremy Dronfield and some mind-bending Oxford and Cambridge Questions in So, You Think You’re Clever? by John Farndon.
