So you think you're a book nerd?
12 January, 2016
For those of us who aren’t doing Dry January, and are mourning the loss of the Christmas festive period with a pint or five in the pub – why not liven things up with a pub quiz round all about the subject closest to our hearts? (That’s books by the way.)
How many have you read?
Our 12 Books of Christmas
10 December, 2015
Christmas is getting so close we can almost taste the mince pies and eggnog. Presents are being wrapped, trees adorned with sparkly things of various shapes and sizes and the Christmas jumpers are out in force. But what of our beloved bookshelves at this time of year? In all the chaos of Christmas planning, attention must still be paid. So the Hodder team have resorted to making up some silly rhyming jingles about our favourite books (of course).
If I was your Secret Santa . . .
30 November, 2015
Hands up who’s doing a Secret Santa this year? Isn’t it awkward when you get someone who you really can’t think of a good gift for? Being the bookish folk that we are we’ve all started daydreaming about what we’d get some of our favourite literary characters if we were their Secret Santa.
The History of Christmas
12 November, 2015
As the song says: ‘It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, everywhere you go.’
Except it’s not is it? We’re into what feels like week 38 of Christmas fever and everywhere is covered in tinsel, glitter and reindeer. It’s like this already and it’s still only the middle of November. Let me say that again: the middle of November. Every year Christmas seems to get earlier and earlier and the constant reminders to buy presents become more and more tiresome.
Well we’re taking a stand!
