World Book Night By Boat


Our book, The Reluctant Fundamentalist

Our Skipper with books to hand to give away

Our first customer receiving our book from the boat

Glen did a great job from the front giving the books away to walkers along the canal

Having a read while going through Wolvercote Lock

Chance meeting of Mark Haddon who is one of the authors supporting World Book Night by donating his book, The Curious Incident of The Dog In The Night, how random was that seeing him standing by the canal?

Another walker gets a book as we cruise towards Oxford

Closer into Oxford things got busier

Down to our last few books now as we head onto the River Thames for the trip back to Wolvercote

Our last book was given to the Enviromental Agency's River Inspector who come along side to collect there book.
