Not everyone is on Facebook!

I've never been tempted to join Facebook or Twitter and I'm fed up with the assumption that everyone has. It's really annoying when you get emails telling you to 'like us' and win Nectar points, to enter a competition (link to Facebook) or watch an instructional video (on Facebook, of course). I've just now had an offer from Bloomsbury books: a competition (they mean a draw, you bet), to win all the Sidney Chambers books and the prequel, which I'm currently reading, as it happens. I know I'd be unlikely to win but I wouldn't mind the chance.
