Box of books
Q: When does the message 'the books have arrived' sound like code? A:When the books are 48 copies of The Spy Who Came in from The Cold. The books are at the Atkinson Pryce bookshop in Biggar whence they will be whisked in an unmarked vehicle today to the Heatherghyll Hotel in Crawford ready to be distributed, courtesy of the proprietor Philip Leek to long distance lorry drivers on World Book Night - March 5 2011. A meeting of Moffat Book Events today to finalise the programme design -to be like a wedding order of service, requesting the pleasure of your company - for our inaugural event at the Moffat house hotel on April 16. Our theme is love, romance and happy married life, most suitable in the feverish, cupcake-ridden run-up to the royal wedding ten days later on April 29. And champagne.
