Extracts

We know. Looking at books online isn't as good as being able to pick them up in a bookshop.

You can't touch the cover. You can't flick through the pages. You can't get high on that great new book smell (or is that just us?)

But hey — at least you can read an extract. Here, we've given you a taste of the books on our list — enough to know if you like it (we're pretty sure you will), and if it's what you're looking for.

Happy reading!
