- Do you find reading difficult?
- Do you never pick up a book?
- Do you find books intimidating, difficult or boring?
- Or do you know someone who does?
Quick Reads set out to show that books and reading can be for everyone. Quick Reads books are specifically designed to be short and easy to read. They are similar to mainstream books but are shorter and easier to tackle for adults who are less confident in their reading skills. We have the latest Quick Reads books in the library for staff to borrow. Have a look at the list of titles below.
Quick Reads is making real, lasting changes to people’s lives. Since 2006,4.5 million books have been distributed through the initiative, 3 million library loans have been registered and through outreach work hundreds of thousands of new readers each year have been introduced to the joys and benefits of reading. Quick Reads is a unique collaboration and we are very grateful for the support of everyone involved.
