Our February Book of the Month shot to international bestsellerdom as soon as it was published in August 2010. ROOM by Emma Donoghue has been shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize and won the Hughes & Hughes Irish Novel of the Year. It has also been a finalist for International Author of the Year (Galaxy National Book Awards). 

We've also got a very special giveaway this month - the extremely generous Picador peeps are giving Mumsnetters 500 exclusive free copies of ROOM so quickly head to Picador's website to claim yours before they all get snatched up. There's also a taster chapter and interviews to whet your appetite.

We are delighted that Emma will be joining us on Wednesday February 16, 8-9 pm for the bookclub discussion - look forward to seeing you all there...

And you can read further interviews, watch trailers and get all the reviews for ROOM at Emma's website or you can also read the Booker Prize website's interview with Emma to find out more

If it is the first 500 will it just stop when they are all allocated?

Emma Donoghue is at one of our county libraries on 17th Feb. At the bottom of the publicity sheet it invites you to join a webchat with Emma on Mumsnet on Feb 16th. No chance of me getting a copy from the library then!!

FreudianSlipIntoMyLaptop · 17/01/2011 23:06

Are there often free books for MNers? Never browsed the book club before...

I loved this book -had to stay up during the night during one bit with my heart pounding.
I couldn't sleep until I knew what had happened.
