Quick Reads, launched by the Reading Agency in 2006, have proved to be very popular with many of our groups, and are a particularly good starting point for less confident readers.
Authors including Andy McNab, Jojo Moyes, Anne Cleeves, Ian Rankin and Benjamin Zephaniah have penned the short and snappy titles over the years, and the Reading Agency supply supporting resources and a guide to Quick Reads for different reading abilities.
