James Bond fans take home free books at giveaway event

Friday the 22nd August, 2014

On Tuesday 12 August our James Bond Bookbench exploded with life as fans of Ian Fleming gathered at the BookBench to take part in an exclusive book giveaway.

Thanks to the generosity of Vintage Publishers and Ian Fleming Publications over 200 books of different James Bond titles were up for grabs.

The event was so popular that a crowd of eager fans formed waiting to win some free prizes.

Piles of beautiful books filled the James Bond-inspired BookBench in Bloomsbury Square Gardens and were eagerly snapped up.

Afterwards, the crowd compared their books and shared photos of their new books on social media.
