Fun and games during NZ Book Month

September Treasure Hunt

A quirky competition has been launched to support NZ Book Month.

Louise Wrightson, and her company New Zealand Books Abroad, is promoting a book lovers’ treasure hunt as her contribution to the event.

“ On 1 September we are planting five fictitious titles among the genuine NZ published books on our webshop,” said Wrightson.

“All people have to do is spot the phoneys and email them to us with their name. All the correct entries will go in a draw to win all 25 finalists in this year’s Montana Book Awards. This fine library of the best in contemporary publishing is worth more than $1300.”

Wrightson said she is a passionate supporter of NZ publishing and that she is delighted with the quality and the range of NZ books on offer.

“Selling NZ books at home and abroad is a serious business. The competition we are running in support of NZ Book Month gives us a chance to have lots of fun on the side.”
