      If I were to win one of these prizes, I could donate them to the school I work at, we recently lost our entire Library collection in a fire and insurance will only go a small way towards rebuilding the collection.

      To Mary Lavers It is in the contest terms and conditions. 3. The competition is open to all excluding residents of Italy. Parents/guardians must submit the entry for those under the age of 16. So yes - Canadians can submit an entry, good luck.

      If only all the libraries in the whole world were so interested in giving culture and classic literature to the world on prizes or for such low prizes and such good quality. Everytime that I make a big order I add some classics to round the price of my basket. Thank you, Book Depository!

      My fondest memories are of my Father reading to me. He introduced me to friends like The March Sisters and Oliver and took me places such as Narnia and Greengables. Now that I have two girls of my own, this would help them make their own unknown friends and adventures. Fondest memories of their Mother.
