Today is the day

The Amazon Kindle finally launches in the UK… sort of.

The online retailer announced this week that the Kindle would be launched in the UK on 19 October just in time for Christmas, retailing at $279 (approx £176). However, Amazon have had to compromise on a few things to get the Kindle out in time.

Internship at EIBF

This summer I have an internship at the celebrated Edinburgh International Book Festival.  I will be assisting in the management and administration of the Children’s Programme. The Children’s and Education Programme has become a leading showcase for children’s writers and illustrators, with hundreds of events including workshops, ‘meet-the-author sessions’, storytelling, panel discussions and book signings.

‘My role will include liaising with authors, publishers and chair people to ensure that they are well prepared for the events, supporting school visits and assisting the day-to-day administration of the programme.

‘I am delighted to have been given this opportunity and am really looking forward to the experience.’
