The lovely people at Viking/Penguin Books in the US have got a paperback copy of Rules of Civility by Amor Towles to be given away in celebration of the release of the paperback edition. I loved this book when I read it last summer so it comes highly recommended!
To be in with a chance of winning, leave a comment below with your favourite Rule of Civility from George Washington’s original list and I’ll draw names out of a
hatmug on Sunday night UK time so you have until midday Sunday GMT+1 (i.e. my local London time) to enter.
If anyone’s interested, my current favourite is “Turn not your Back to others especially in Speaking, Jog not the Table or Desk on which Another reads or writes, lean not upon any one”. It turns out that vibrations from someone jiggling their foot travel a really long way in a Portacabin.
