This year W H Smith is celebrating its 225th anniversary and as part of the celebrations is holding a competition to find the Nationís favourite book written in the last 225 years. Earlier this year they asked their Facebook, Twitter and Instagram followers to contact them with recommendations of their favourite books. Now, using those recommendations, they have produced a short list of twenty titles and are asking people to vote for their favourite. One lucky person will win a copy of all twenty books, which includes titles by Charles Dickens, Jane Austen, the Bronte sisters, Harper Lee, F. Scott Fitzgerald and more recent authors including Emma Donoghue.
Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier is on the short list and we would love to see Daphneís most famous novel win the title of the Nationís Favourite Book, so whatever your choice click on the link and get voting.
