The surest way to get the attention of our dogs is to say - with a suitably questioning intonation - "Would you like.....?" Heads on one side, ears cocked, eyes alert, they wait for the concluding word which could be 'biscuit', 'walk', 'chew', 'prime rib of beef', and so on. Today it's not canine comestibles I'm offering but good literature, because it's BAFAB week again. So, would you, Cornflower readers, like a book?
I shall be giving away a new copy of one of my favourite books to the person whose name is drawn out of the hat in a few days' time. To enter, just leave a comment on this post, telling us your favourite or most often read book, one that you would take to a desert island with you. I'll deviate from the Roy Plomley formula and suggest the island already has the complete Oxford English Dictionary, but name your volume (or volumes - you could choose a series or set of one writer's works), and let's see what comes up to fill the stacks of our imaginary library.
As ever, distance is no object as the prize can go anywhere in the world, and you don't have to be a regular visitor to the site to enter, everyone passing through is welcome to have a go.
