Quick reads

Quick reads are short, sharp shots of entertainment; as fast and furious as an action film, as thrilling as a theme park ride; brilliantly written books by bestselling writers and celebrities. Don't have the time to read a full novel? Like to try something new? Brushing up on your reading skills? Give quick reads a go.

Copies of the Quick Reads and Gatehouse books can be found by looking at the online catalogue or by speaking to a member of staff.
