World Book Night 23 April

Discover Quick Reads

In 2024 we’re creating a nation of readers, and we’re thrilled to feature the new Quick Reads series as the next World Book Night booklist. Quick Reads are short books and great stories by bestselling authors, written in an accessible and easy to read style. They’re a valuable tool for boosting reading skills, confidence and engagement in learning, and have led to thousands of adults reading, completing and enjoying a book for the first time.























We’re inviting public libraries to distribute copies of Quick Reads to people who don’t regularly read for pleasure or have access to books. Find out more.

You can also find recommendations of all the books we’ve featured on our curated booklists since 2011. Use our book sorter to find your next read across a range of genres.

World Book Night is run by The Reading Agency, a national charity that tackles life’s big challenges through the proven power of reading.
