How we choose the books

Buy books from or to support The Reading Agency and local bookshops at no additional cost to you, and to see recommendations from some of our authors.

Our books are chosen through careful discussions with publishers to establish which titles are best suited to reach key audiences. To inform our discussions, we also consider the results of a survey of our volunteers and other recommendations to come up with a list of fantastic reads that will inspire readers and non-readers alike.
