World Book Night (a day or two early)
An email from the organizers of World Book Night this morning informed me that 48 identification numbers had been allotted to each copy of the Spy Who Came in from the Cold I thought I was going to distribute tomorrow evening (March 5th). I rang The Heatherghyll hotel in Crawford to discuss this last minute change of instructions. A voice answered the telephone. The proprietor is away all weekend. 40 of the books have already been given away. Yes, I agreed, it's a bit late now to give numbers to the remaining 8 copies. Saturdays are quiet anyway. OK. OK. Bye. Bye.
