Latest in Just One book campaign

Here's the latest on Facebook from Salt director Chris Hamilton-Emery:
A month in to the Just One Book campaign we’ve had 1,400 orders and taken over £30K (two months’ cash): it’s been extraordinary, exhausting and exhilarating.
The ICA is now supporting the campaign, there's to be a new ad in the London Review of Books (which reminds me I must take out a subscription again), and Birminghan New Street Waterstone's is doing a Salt table display. Wonderful!

And apparently Jay Merill, author of the haunting story collection Astral Bodies, is helping out in the Salt office for a week, despatching US orders.

Ooh, great about the ICA and the LRB and Waterstone's, wish i could swing by and have a look. And good for Jay! My partner, James, is also going to be helping out in the office. Momentum is building, which is wonderful.
