Even reluctant readers will be drawn in! Readers of all stages and ages will find themselves being educated, all in the name of fun.
Ideal for book clubs, but can also be adapted to friends, family, workmates, students or even solitary readers.
Covers all genres – fiction, poetry, drama, biography, autobiography, science fiction, fantasy, crime, romance, historical writing - essentially, the whole bookshop!
