Win, read and review copies of 12 Bytes by Jeanette Winterson!

Vintage is excited to offer reading groups 10 copies of 12 Bytes, the series of fun, eye-opening, mind-expanding essays from Sunday Times bestseller Jeanette Winterson on the impact of technology on our everyday lives while looking at love, work, religion, identity and everything in between, making for an excellent book for group discussion.

Each book set will also come with some handy reading group notes.

About 12 Bytes

Drawing on her years of thinking and reading about Artificial Intelligence in its bewildering manifestations, Jeanette Winterson looks to history, religion, myth, literature, politics and, of course, computer science, to help us understand the radical changes to the way we live and love that are happening now.

With wit, compassion and curiosity, Winterson tackles AI’s most interesting talking points, from the algorithms that data-dossier your whole life, to the weirdness of backing up your brain.

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...
