Summer is a time when some go travelling, so we have selected the perfect books that can transport a reader somewhere else even if they’re not going away. On the list we have a fantasy book based on African history and mythology, a non-fiction book tracing the Ottoman Empire and a sizzling holiday love story to help transport you on some exciting journeys this summer. Tell us what you thought of any of the books on the list by tagging us on social media using #booklist and tagging @readingagency!
The Reading Agency's August Booklist for Adults - Escape with a Book
The BBC Radio 2 Book Club announced on 24 January that its new home is on the Zoe Ball Breakfast Show. The Radio 2 Book Club will feature a wide range of titles and authors, recommending great reads from both new and much-loved writers, encouraging listeners to perhaps try out a genre they might not have read before, and share their opinions and insights on the titles and great reads they’re enjoying right now.

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...
