Christmas Book Flood | Recommending reading


Runes;red J
Please visit our current Book Bulletin crowdfunding project at CrowdPatch to buy recommendations for our Winter catalogue and to volunteer your skills, experience and contacts. All funds raised will support the not-for-profit Jolabokaflod Book Campaign’s programme for 2019.

List of advocates

This page comprises a collation of everyone who has recommended a title for inclusion in the Book Bulletin for Christmas 2016. The list is displayed in alphabetical order of surname; each entry consists of the recommender’s full name, organisation and/or project, and twitter handle.

In order to appear on this list (after the free offer period concluded on 2 December 2016), each person has contributed at least £10.00 to the Book Bulletin crowdfunding project, hosted at CrowdPatch in the Jolabokaflod Book Campaign patch.
