Quick reads are short books by well known authors especially written for people who are reluctant or have little time to read. Quick reads is sponsored by Galaxy chocolate and is a World book day initiative to support literacy and reading amongst adults. Over the past nine years, Quick Reads has introduced millions of people to the pleasure of picking up a book by providing short, books by bestselling writers.
These books will be available from early February from Amazon.
This years books are….
Dead Man Talking – Roddy Doyle
Paris for Two One – Jojo Moyes
Red for Revenge -Fanny Blake
Pictures or it Didn’t Happen – Sophie Hannah
Out Of The Dark – Adéle Geras
Street Can Bob – James Bowen
Since its launch, Quick Reads has distributed over 4.3m books and there have been over 3.5m library loans. It such a good idea to get people into reading who just dont think they have the time. I know so many mothers who say they don’t have time to read a book so grab a magazine instead. Well this gives them a great alternative to that!
