Books Catcher 2011 Series 1 courtesy of HMV (UK)

HMV IS A UK-BASED MUSIC store/shop but few years ago it started selling books and ereading devices. The store is the leading distributor of records - from CDs to DVDs formats, including films and video games. HMV price tags for books are cheaper (free delivery for online purchases) than other bookshops like Waterstones or WHSmith.

What a coincidence that I grabbed two novels at 2 sterling pounds (originally tagged at 7.99 sterling pounds) written by authors sharing the same first name. Sarah Waters' The Night Watch was shortlisted for The Man Booker and The Orange Prize, while Sarah Dunant's Sacred Hearts was included in the 2010's The TV BookClub Best Read organized by UK TV Channel 4.

Note: I am one of the book givers of Sarah Waters' third novel entitled, Fingersmith and the book will be distributed on the 5th March 2011 in Belfast, Northern Ireland being organized by World Book Night.
