Summer Reading

Warmer weather is finally here and, as it varies from baking heatwave to rain and wind week-by-week, it can only mean one thing... we're in the midst of a Great British Summer!

So, if you're looking to keep busy this summer, we have a great selection of travel and walking guides as well as books to inspire you with transforming your Garden or Home. We also have a great selection of activity books like Where's Wally and Percy and Friends to keep younger minds occupied during those long summer holidays.

Whatever the weather is doing, you can always transport yourself to a new world within the pages of a good book, whether it be a great criminal story like Better Off Dead or perhaps you want something a little more romantic such as Bridgerton? Whatever your genre of choice, there are plenty of options for you to enjoy all summer long!
