Interesting People - James Patterson

US crime writer James Patterson is offering £250,000 to independent bookshops in the UK and Ireland.

(Worried about the death of the independent bookshops, he has already run a similar scheme in the US, with grants of between £250 and £5,000 available to spend on schemes aimed at encouraging reading among children. 

This is what you could call, putting your money where your mouth is.)
