News Storm

Well April seems to be a busy month for us.

We've been picked up in several articles including the Financial Times, BBC News, Telegraph and Guardian (Although Richard Lea seems to have confused us with the wonderful Bookcrossing initiative) as well as countless blogs from around the globe. We even managed to fit in time for a brief radio debate on BBC Worldservice with the chief editor of City AM (London's business freesheet).

So what does this mean for us?

Well to begin with we're expanding; on May 5th we hope to add London Bridge, Charing Cross and Kings Cross to the list of stations we give out books at. Also to cope with the increased attention and paperwork we would like to welcome a new member to the team, the rather lovely Emma Wright (Round of applause).

We've also become inundated with responses from members of the public wondering if they can donate books to the scheme, and the response as always is a very big yes. Some people have so many to give that we're in the process of planning a pickup day with a van around London in the next two weeks.

Beyond that there are several very exciting things in the pipeline including several new drop boxes, so keep your eyes and ears peeled for updates.
