Make this your summer of reading!
Love reading but not always sure what to read next? Book-loving Brits have been turning to Bookchoice to get back into the groove.
Now Bookchoice is giving Silversurfers members a free bundle of ebooks and audiobooks to get their summer reading started – just head to Bookchoice.com/surfer18 and enter the code SURFER18.
Anyone who enjoys reading knows that everyday life can get in the way. Or that it can be hard to decide when it’s worth taking a punt on a new author. But sometimes it just takes a chance encounter to make you fall in love again – a friend’s recommendation, an intriguing B&B bookshelf, or an old paperback you stumble upon at the library.
Bookchoice decided to recreate that feeling of discovery with a monthly ebook/audiobook delivery service. It works on any smartphone, tablet, computer, ereader (including Kindles), so you can enjoy your new books wherever your travels take you this summer.
Ready to get reading? Start with some of the June and July picks:
MA’AM DARLING by Craig Brown (JUNE PICK)
Princess Margaret aroused strong feelings: to her friends, she was witty and regal. To her enemies, she was rude and demanding. Andy Warhol photographed her. Jack Nicholson offered her cocaine. Gore Vidal revered her. Pablo Picasso dreamt about her.
A wildly entertaining meditation on fame and art, snobbery and deference, bohemia and high society.
‘Heaven’ – India Knight, Sunday Times
THE MARBLE COLLECTOR by Cecilia Ahern (JULY PICK)
When Sabrina stumbles upon a mysterious collection of her father’s belongings, her seemingly uneventful life suddenly shifts. Another emotional rollercoaster from Ahern – the master of the tearjerker, and author of #1 bestseller P.S. I Love You.
‘An illuminating and touching father/daughter story about memory, childhood and secrets’ – Woman & Home
HIDDEN FIGURES by Margot Lee Shetterly (JULY PICK)
The never-before-told true story of NASA’s African-American female mathematicians who played a crucial role in winning the space race, and the book that inspired the Academy-Award Nominated film starring Taraji P Henson and Octavia Butler.
A TIME Magazine Top 10 Nonfiction Book of 2016
THE TATTOOIST OF AUSCHWITZ by Heather Morris (JUNE PICK)
For readers of Schindler’s List and The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas comes a heartbreaking love story, showing us the very best of humanity in the very worst of circumstances.
‘Extraordinary – moving, confronting and uplifting’’ – Graeme Simsion, author of The Rosie Project
MOTHER LAND by Paul Theroux (JULY PICK)
A new novel from the multi-award winning travel and fiction writer. An engrossing, hilarious and heartbreaking portrait of a modern family – the bickering, the conspiracies, and the drive to overcome the painful ties that bind.
‘Hilarious…Theroux possesses a fabulously nasty sense of humor’ – Stephen King
BORN ON THE FOURTH OF JULY by Ron Kovic (JULY PICK)
The iconic memoir, made famous by the Tom Cruise film, now with a new foreword by Bruce Springsteen. Follow the author’s life story from a patriotic soldier in Vietnam, to his severe battlefield injury, to his role as the country’s most outspoken anti–Vietnam War advocate, spreading his message from his wheelchair.
