Commonwealth by Ann Patchett

Commonwealth

A book loved by Michelle Obama.

We have a reading group set of The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah to give away.

About the book

It is 1964: Bert Cousins shows up at Franny Keating’s christening party uninvited and notices a heart stoppingly beautiful woman.

When he kisses Beverly Keating, his host’s wife, he sets in motion the joining of two families, whose shared fate will be defined on a day seven years later.

Please apply by 15 August, telling us why your reading group would like to win the set.

In the run up to publication of her autobiography, Becoming (published 13 November), Michelle Obama has been speaking to the American Library Association about her and her family’s love of books. Find out more about the books loved by Michelle Obama.

Hive and The Reading Agency

The Reading Agency loves books, in every form, and we know you do too. We love it when people borrow books in every format from their brilliant local libraries. We love it when reading groups get exclusive free proofs from our publisher partners. We love it when readers pick up a pre-loved book from a second-hand bookshop for a song. And we also love it when you buy yourself or someone else a brand new book from a high street bookshop. We also know that buying online is quick and convenient...
