Galaxy Quick Reads 2012 unveiled

10th August 2011

The eight books that will comprise the 2012 Galaxy Quick Reads list have been unveiled, with each aimed at encouraging people who have stopped reading to get back into books.

Next year's line-up features a combination of new and established authors, which Galaxy is hoping will attract adults who either believe they do not have time to read or find it difficult to do so.

The 2012 list includes Full House by Maeve Binchy, The Cleverness of Ladies by Alexander McCall Smith and Conn Iggulden's Quantum of Tweed: The Man with the Stolen Gun.

The Little One by Lynda La Plante, Beyond the Bounty by Tony Parsons and Maureen Lee's Amy's Diary also feature on the list, along with Get the Life You Really Want by James Caan and Doctor Who: Magic of the Angels by Jacqueline Rayner.

Gail Rebuck, chair of Quick Reads, said next year will also see the launch of the Fall in Love with Reading campaign, which will include partnerships with national media outlets and the involvement of famous faces.

She added that employers such as Mars, First Bus and P&O will also be introducing reading breaks for their employees 'to enhance skills and productivity', with self-sustaining reading groups also developed nationwide.

To celebrate, here is a far from exhaustive selection of some of the beer literature that can help you better appreciate the delicate arts of brewing and drinking beer.
