    Something is brewing at the Book Depository... eggs of nefarious nature have taken over the site and are about to hatch unspeakable horrors and alien threats. Or, we decided to organise a harmless egg hunt. Either way, we have placed the alien eggs around the site and our social media for you to find! The winner will get a collection of advance copies of great books.

    blog image The sinister eggs look a bit like this with variations in colour and hatching levels. (This counts as one by the way!) Tell us below how many eggs there are to be in with a chance to win!

    Don't forget to check out our Twitter, Facebook and Google + accounts.

    HINT: None of the website eggs are more than one click away from the UK homepage...

    'Hi! My name is Nao, and I am a time being. Do you know what a time being is? Well, if you give me a moment, I will tell you.'

    Ruth discovers a Hello Kitty lunchbox washed up on the shore of her beach home. Within it lies a diary that expresses the hopes and dreams of a young girl. She suspects it might have arrived on a drift of debris from the 2011 tsunami. With every turn of the page, she is sucked deeper into an enchanting mystery.

    In a small cafe in Tokyo, sixteen-year-old Nao Yasutani is navigating the challenges thrown up by modern life. In the face of cyberbullying, the mysteries of a 104-year-old Buddhist nun and great-grandmother, and the joy and heartbreak of family, Nao is trying to find her own place - and voice - through a diary she hopes will find a reader and friend who finally understands her.

    Weaving across continents and decades, and exploring the relationship between reader and writer, fact and fiction, A TALE FOR THE TIME BEING is an extraordinary novel about our shared humanity and the search for home.

    Publishers Canongate have given us 5 Signed copies and a poster of the jacket to give away to 5 lucky winners! Just answer the question below by Thursday 28th March to be in with a chance to win!
