Summer Readin’

We have three pairs of books to give away to any Manchester Confidential readers in need of a little sunshine in their lives.

Summer Readin’

Apparently, it’s summer. Not that you would know it by looking outside – after a few warm days in April the sun seems to have thrown his hat away and called in sick with exhaustion.

If you’re not really feeling the summer vibe just yet, then those lovely people at Summersdale Publishers are here to help, with a couple of books that will whisk you away from rainy Manchester to magical sunny places across the globe.

We have copies of two books to give away to bring a little sunshine to the lives of Manchester Confidential readers – Riding the Magic Carpet by Tom Anderson, and Buttertea at Sunrise by Britta Das.

Riding The Magic Carpet is like, a totally bodacious book which will do for surfing what Fever Pitch did for football. It follows Tom as he travels around the globe in search of the perfect wave, from the beautiful beaches of France to the wilds of Sri Lanka, from the virgin reef-breaks of the Outer Orkneys to the temple point-breaks of Indonesia.

If you would prefer to escape to somewhere a little more serene, then Butter Tea at Sunrise will whisk you away to the magical paradise at the end of the world – Bhutan. Set against the dramatic scenery of the Himalayas, this beautiful memoir reveals hardships and happiness in a land almost untouched by the West.

We have three pairs of books to give away to any Manchester Confidential readers who feel that they could do with a little sunshine in their lives. So whether you are in need of some quality airport reading for your holidays, or simply could do with a little brightening up after one too many gloomy days at work, fill your details into the form below and a pair of books could be winging their way to you!
