TheReadingRoom Unveils 2014 Best Summer Reading List
New York, NY
Nothing defines a summer more than the experience of being engrossed in a really good book. Its ability to sweep the reader away to another time, to be part of another family, or even to inhabit a world of crime and intrigue - all from the comfort of one's own deck chair - is a seduction few readers can refuse. Indeed, whether it's a critically acclaimed novel, an 800 page romp, or a chilling page-turner, there is nothing quite like getting lost in a book on a summer's day.
TheReadingRoom's Best Books of Summer is a great place for consumers to discover their next great read. The independent online bookstore has managed to confine its selection to a baker's dozen of books that is sure to have something for everyone. Narrowing the list down to twelve was, in and of itself, a Herculean task because there are so many amazing reads to choose from this summer!
As an indie bookseller and social discovery platform, TheReadingRoom wants to ensure that its picks help members find books at the best possible prices. With this in mind, they're pleased to announce that all of their summer picks are all 40% off and free shipping, and chosen not by an algorithm but by people who read and love books.
Highlights from the list of 12 include:
The Girl With All the Gifts by MR Carey - an emotionally charged, ground-breaking thriller set in a world overrun by zombies.
