Waterstone's has joined forces with Grazia magazine to launch a book club featuring 10 titles.
One Grazia Book Club title will feature in the magazine every week from the next issue, allowing readers to claim 50% off the r.r.p. of the chosen novel in Waterstone's stores and online.
Among the selected titles are this year's Orange Prize for Fiction winner Tea Obreht's The Tiger's Wife (Weidenfeld & Nicolson). The launch title is Caitlin Moran's How to be a Woman (Ebury). The Grazia Book Club will feature in windows and front of store displays across the Waterstone's estate.
Janine Cook, Waterstone's fiction campaign buyer, said: "We are thrilled to be hosting the Grazia Book Club at Waterstone's. The magazine is the ultimate arbiter of style for modern women, and they have proven to have as good an eye for books as they have for fashion. These are 10 brilliant books that are perfect for Grazia readers and Waterstone's customers, at fantastic value."
Victoria Harper, Grazia's specials director, said it is as important for their readers to know what the "book of the moment” is as much as the next hot new fashion label. She said: "Joining forces with Waterstone's to give customers the heads up on our handpicked 10 hottest books to buy right now is a fantastic opportunity to give even more value and service to our readers and Waterstone's customers too.”
The chain bookseller also runs a Grazia book event every month and has featured authors such as Bret Easton Ellis, James Frey, Nigella Lawson and Audrey Niffenegger.
