In early August we waved goodbye to 330 copies of Wilbur Smith's Pharaoh as they began a new chapter with the charity, Book Aid International.

Book Aid International are a mid-sized charity with a large reach, delivering up to one million carefully selected new books to libraries in Africa each year. As well as providing books, they run programmes and projects that help readers get the most out of the books. 

Like us, Book Aid believe that books and reading have the power to transform lives. We hope these editions of Pharaoh will bring pleasure to many more readers.
