OCTOBER's Three Bright Ideas
October is definitely book festival season and it's the best time to catch your favourite writer on tour, especially if they have a new book to talk about. To celebrate we have picked two Den authors, Ian McEwan and Amor Towles: Machines Like Me is an unsettling dystopian novel set in Thatcher's Britain and sees the return of McEwan on form. Alternatively for a dose of cocktails, 1930s charm and charisma Amor Towles's Rules of Civility is the perfect piece of escapism and a 'darling' in the Den. Our Book of the Moment is the extraordinary, brilliantly written Frankissstein by Jeanette Winterson - not only because it is a re-imagining of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein but because it is a topical and exciting book - could this be our future?
For the best book club experience, The Reading Den offers three hand-picked choices each month, our top ten reads, our favourite authors and a platform to share your reading ideas with us.
