Books: World Book Day competition

To celebrate World Book Day, which takes place on Shakespeare's birthday, 23 April, we offered a year of reading - a book per month - to the first 10 readers to write in with the name of the Russian writer who was also born on that day. The answer was Vladimir Nabokov.

The winners are: G Handy, Bishops Stortford; G Taylor, St Albans; L Smith, Worcester; A Strachan, Manchester; T Caulfield, Whitley Bay; D Spooner, Twickenham; M Brown, London N8; C Parke, Bangor, Co Down; B Whelan, Stourbridge; R Jenkins, Aberystwyth.

Thanks to everyone else who wrote in.
