2. We will select one reader for each book. If there are more than one readers interested in the same book we will pick the reader by lucky draw and hand over the book to them

3. Selected readers will be invited to a function that will be held in British Library, Bangalore, and the books will be presented

4. Once you have the book in hand you can log on to our website and enter the book-code given on the book to join the chain for that particular book

Read the book

1. Visit us online again and tell us what you thought of the book

2. Once you’ve finished reading the book, pass it to a friend, colleague relative or even a stranger and tell them to follow these instructions too

You can follow the book you have read, as well as others, as they travel around the city and beyond, find out what others thought of the different books!
