Don't fancy chancing it last minute at the airport bookshop or leafing through the array of dog eared, musty smelling paperbacks at the holiday cottage this summer?
Then let these good folk recommend some top reads to pass the time on whichever beach/poolside/country stile you happen to be reclining on this holiday season.
Charlie H recommends: The Road Home by Rose Tremain
'All about this guy from Eastern Europe who escapes tragedy to save money, chase dreams and hit the rawness of the streets of London. It's a real tear jerker. And if you don't cry, then basically, you've got no soul.'
Jo G recommends: The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
'Death tells the story all about a little girl growing up in Nazi Germany. It's a poignant tragedy that makes you think about death in a totally different way. An utterly gripping read.'
Dan recommends: What I talk about when I talk about running by Haruki Murakami
'I loved this book about running. It made me think a bit about why I run, and why we do things in general. The result? I will run a little more.'
Tansy recommends: You can be as young as you think by Tim Drake and Chris Middleton
'I don't usually delve too much into books that make me 'prod myself' - far too scary - but this is a nudging gem. All about taking a youthful outlook on life and making it much more fun in the process. My brain age is apparently nearing middle age (it starts going downhill from 23) so I found it just in time. Hopefully by the end of the summer, I'll be all teenager like again.'
Gav recommends: Christine by Stephen King
'Possessed 1958 Plymouth Fury. Drives itself. Kills people. Doesn't like owner's girlfriend. Only one chapter to go. Hecking loving it.'
If after that final rave review you fancy reading more about maniacal motors, then just guess below which page Gav is currently on and if you're within 22 pages, we'll send you the book once he's finished reading it.
