Publishing Scotland will be taking part in Book Week Scotland this year by encouraging thoughtful book giving - ScotBookFlood! Inspired by the unique tradition of book gifting in Iceland, Jólabókaflóð (which translates roughly as 'Christmas book flood'), ScotBookFlood will celebrate Scottish-Nordic/Icelandic literary links and encourage thoughtful book gifting for loved ones in the run-up to Christmas.

Highlights will include:

From Monday 27 November to Sunday 3 December we invite the public to join our conversation by using the hashtags #ScotBookFlood, #BookWeekScotland, and tweeting @scottishbooks.
