New books for February!

It may be windy and rainy outside, but here in Bookland we’re celebrating spring with a beautiful bouquet of colourful titles that are sure to put the spring in anyone’s step.

Our new giftbook series featuring Esme the Bird kicks off with For the Best Mum in the World, Live Laugh Love and Always Look on the Bright Side of Life. You can follow Esme on Twitter at @EsmeTheBird – her words of wisdom are sure to inspire you.

With the Six Nations kicking off, there’s no better time to celebrate your patriotism, with Scottish and Proud of It, English and Proud of It, Irish and Proud of It and Welsh and Proud of It – and lovers of the Emerald Isle will also enjoy travelling through the pages of Ireland: The Land of a Hundred Thousand Welcomes.

Moments of Serenity offers tips to bring a little more peace into our hectic lives, while Denyse Kirkby’s friendly and accessible guide for mothers-to-be, My Mini Midwife, tells you everything you need to know about pregnancy and birth – we’re delighted to welcome this beautiful book to the world!

Finally, we offer pleasures both raucous and wholesome with The Little Book of Drinking Games (play to win, but please play responsibly) and Words from the Garden (an ideal contrast to the world of competitive drinking).

On another note, we were thrilled to see Denyse Kirkby participating in the Team Honk Relay for Sport Relief a couple of weeks ago. Denyse (third from left) and her teammates ran 5 kilometres from Portsmouth Guildhall to Baffins Pond, completing one stage of a crazy zigzag tour of the UK.
