What do you do once you’ve finished reading a much loved novel? Keep it in a bookshelf and gaze at it each day? Store it by your bed so you can re-read it each night before you disappear into dreamland? Or do you bury it in the garden?

The last one sounds a little odd, doesn’t it? Well, if you’re readers of Patrick S Tomlinson‘s The Ark it might not be so strange. In the spirit of Pat’s other job – as a stand up comedian – his friends have taken to social media to express their love for his novel by placing their copies of The Ark in a variety of weird settings.

Here are a couple of examples:


At first we felt terribly bad for Pat but then…well it’s kind of funny…so we thought we’d invite you all to jump on the bandwagon and share your Ark Attack photos.

Just tweet us your photos using the hashtag #ArtAttack and in one week’s time (Thursday 19 November) we’ll pick the best photo. The winner will receive a big old box of books from yours truly.

So get snapping, the meaner the better. And don’t worry, Patrick can take it (we think)!
