This is an offer you can’t afford to miss out on! Following the success of the Free Reads for Smart Women promotion in February, a group of twelve of us have got together to share a free e-book together with Book Club discussion questions. That’s a whole year’s worth of stimulating reading. There’s a wide range of genres – contemporary fiction, crime, mystery, short stories, historical and thriller – something for all tastes, and each book offers quality reading that will provoke debate and discussion. Get the books here.
To give you a flavour of each book, here’s a little video. Remember you can download as many as you fancy – or all of them.
