To celebrate summer reading, share the value of your favourite book with the Ministry of Stories (www.ministryofstories.org). By donating the cost of a book you love, you'll help us inspire future generations of book lovers. It's easy to donate. Is your book a £2 classic, a £12.99 hardback, a £50 coffee table book? Tell us the title and author, and why you love it. Just head to http://www.justgiving.com/MoS-favouri... and make your donation. Stephen Fry picked A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole and our own Nick Hornby chose I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith as their favourites. With your help we can raise £3000, the cost of training our volunteer mentors for a year. They'll support thousands of local young people to have confidence in their own reading and writing. The MoS Favourites Fund is open until 28 August, when we'll pick the Tip Top Top Ten from the list. If your choice is in it, you'll receive a special invitation to visit the Ministry of Stories. About the MoS The Ministry of Stories was founded by Nick Hornby and co-directors Lucy Macnab and Ben Payne. Hidden away at the back of Hoxton Street Monster Supplies (where else would you expect it?) the Ministry of Stories provides workshops and one-to-one mentoring for 8-18 year olds. The services are provided by volunteers: local writers, artists and teachers, all giving their time and talent for free. Read more about the Ministry of Stories.
