Are you stuck finding that all important read to get you through the Christmas holiday period? You know what its like when you can’t eat, drink, talk or sparkle for one moment longer and what you really want is a quiet corner and a good book. You need look no further! On the Richard and Judy Book Club web site – sponsored by WH Smiths – you will find bags of inspiration. There is literally something for everyone and – as a quick search of Bury Libraries online catalogue will tell you – we hold many of the titles for you to borrow.We even stock some of the titles as e-books and e-audiobooks, just in case Santa leaves you that e-reader you have been coveting!
The most brilliant feature of the Richard and Judy web site is an archive of all of the books that they have read and reviewed in the last six years. So you can approach their reading lists in what ever order you want, you could even challenge yourself to read all of the titles over the coming year! We would love to hear from you if you do try this or if you want to recommend any of your own favourite books.
You may be able to borrow your choosen titles from your local library; especially if you fancy trying something a little different. Bury Libraries can give you a risk free oportunity to widen your reading horizons and ‘try before you buy’ – we can even deliver your requests to the most convenient library for you to collect them from. If we don’t happen to stock a title that you want to borrow you can use our inter library loans service – just bob in to your local library – or make a suggestion for a title to be added to our stock; there are no guarantees but we do consider all suggestions.
I have loved this reading scheme and have used it often over the last twelve months, so thank you to Richard and Judy; I hope it helps you ‘dear readers’ too!
