Quick Reads Lit UpThe Reading Agency will be announcing their book list on 13 December for 2018 World Book Night on 23 April. We will be applying for books to cover our two sites at Parkshot in Richmond and Hillcroft in Surbiton.

We’ve been running reading groups again this autumn term for our students with Kingston University monthly for more confident readers (The Real Book Club) and Fridays weekly for less confident readers (Hillcroft Bookateers).

We’re encouraging students to sign up for Reading Ahead through our Learning Resources team to read six items and review them in the diary. To boost the choice of material we’re in the process of refreshing our graded readers. Particularly those with audio content. Find out what’s freshly arrived on the New area of our catalogue

In addition 6 new Quick Reads are set to hit the shelves on 1 February 2018. So we will order these in shortly. Their authors include Fern Britton, Dorothy Koomson, Mark Billingham, Kit de Waal, Tammy Cohen and Vaseem Khan. The books look at friendship, secrets and lies, marriage and what happens when you lose your mobile phone!

In the mean time we’ve given the Quick Reads area of the Learning Resources Centre a bit of festive spirit in the photo above!
