Lovely HoZ stocking made by

It's only 24 days away… and it's our first one. To celebrate the impending arrival of Christmas, we're delighted to present the HoZ advent calendar. Over the next three and a half weeks, we're lining up a tempting selection of great reads at incredible prices. Starting tomorrow, we'll be offering one ebook a day at just £1 or less. The book of the day will be available to buy at your e-retailer of choice.
