The End of the World Running Club extract

End of the world running club

When the world ends, what do you try to save? Your family.

The End of the World Running Club sees Britain nearly annihilated by asteroids. In Edinburgh, Edgar Hill and his family have survived – just. But despite his best efforts, Edgar hasn’t managed to keep his family together.

There’s a hope that they can all be rescued, but with the roads in ruins and society destroyed, Edgar has only one choice: cross Britain on foot. In three weeks. It’s 550 miles of blood, sweat, tears and a constant struggle to stay alive. Can he make it? If he wants to save his family, he has to.

Fear, determination, hope, panic, anguish, blisters & the ultimate race against time. Welcome to the End of the World Running Club…


Keeping your reading group active while social distancing

Are you wondering how your reading group can continue to meet, even while you’re social distancing? With many people at home with family, flatmates or on their own, we know that books are so important to provide comfort, solace and escapism. Staying socially connected, and keeping your regular reading group meetings in your diary, is going to be very important in keeping up morale and supporting everyone’s mental health as we adjust to a new way of living.

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...
