Sainsbury's launches summer e-book club

Titles from Natasha Pulley and Lauren Groff are to feature in Sainsbury's Entertainment on Demand's "first ever" Summer Book Club, which will showcase two new e-books every Thursday until the end of August.

With 12 summer reads in total, each e-book recommendation is accompanied by a review, an author Q&A and a free glimpse at the first chapter on the Sainsbury’s Entertainment on Demand e-books blog. In addition, reading group questions included with each title will provide “plenty of food for thought” for book clubs and independent readers, Sainsbury's said. Customers who do not enjoy any of the e-books purchased from the Summer Book Club will be able to claim their money back within 30 days, the organisers have said.

The Summer Book Club will commence on the 14th July with Pulley’s debut The Watchmaker of Filigree Street (Bloomsbury), and Barack Obama’s novel of the year, The Fates and the Furies by Groff (William Heinemman).

Also featuring in the book club will be Black Rabbit Hall by Eve Chase (Penguin), Stasi Child by David Young (Twenty7), Where the River Parts by Radhika Swarup (Sandstone Press), I Saw A Man by Owen Sheers (Faber), For the Most Beautiful by Emily Hauser (Doubleday), All These Perfect Strangers by Aoife Clifford (Simon & Schuster), Somewhere Inside of Happy by Anna McPartlin (Black Swan), The Secrets of Wishtide by Kate Saunders (Bloomsbury), The Long Count by JM Gulvin (Faber) and The Unforgotten by Laura Powell (Freight).
