Book Week Scotland 2013 Photos

Book Week Scotland 2013 was a whirlwind of activity. More than 600 events were staged, we unveiled our five author-inspired murals, our literary personality app went viral, the 10 favourite Scottish novels of the last 50 years were revealed, Reading Heroes inspired us, and Big Book Bashes lent a literary flavour to our parties. Here are a few highlight pictures from throughout the week, click on the images to find out more. For an exhaustive selection of photos from the week, browse our Facebook galleries.
