We're delighted to report that the Irish Blood Transfusion Service is giving its full support to Dublin's "One City, One Book" - an annual initiative "designed to encourage everyone in the city to read the same book during the month of April each year".

Splendidly, this year's recommended read is Bram Stoker's classic Dracula, described by the Sunday Times as the "classic gore-sucker".

For those of you who haven't read the book, it's a cracker. Francis Ford Coppola didn't make a bad hash of it with his fairly faithful cinematic adaptation, but for the full spine-chilling experience, try the printed word. ®
