Dear Reader

Welcome to BookCrossing and thanks for being a part of World Book Night 2011, the largest book giveaway in history. 1,000,000 specially printed copies of 25 different books changed hands on March 5th 2011 and began their journey from reader to reader. This book is one of them. World Book Night has joined with BookCrossing to help track these books as they travel. You can be a part of that journey by making a comment in the book's journal here on BookCrossing. Your journal entry can say how you got the book, what you thought of it, your plans for it or whatever else you might like to add.

On BookCrossing you may choose to remain anonymous or join (it's free). If you join, you’ll be alerted by e-mail each time someone makes another journal entry for this specific copy of this book (other copies of the book are travelling with their own ID number. Every copy of every book has a unique ID). It’s all confidential (you’re known only by your screen name and no one is ever given your e-mail address) and spam-free.

Thanks in advance for being part of World Book Night and BookCrossing. And happy reading and sharing.

Was fortunate enough to be chosen as a world book night giver. I chose to give away A Fine Balance because when I read it - it opened my eyes to so much, and simply styayed with me for a long time. It is a beautifully written novel, huge and ambitious, and I look forward to hearing what others think of it.

How exciting. I am thrilled to be part of the World Book Night give-away, via my bookcrossing friend Heaven-Ali. I look forward to reading it (and perhaps Mr Inver may do too). Thank you so much Ali for sending this on to me and have fun giving away the rest tonight.

Time to move this one on from my bookshelf. Passing on to someone else to read and hopefully enjoy. I tried to read it but I just couldn't settle to it.
