Quick Reads

Quick Reads

Quick Reads offer a series of short, engaging books which appeal to readers of all tastes and reading abilities – and they’re only £1 each.

One of the main aims of the Quick Reads series is to encourage readers who are less confident in their reading abilities to pick up a book. Four titles are published annually in Wales – 2 in Welsh and 2 in English – and they cover a wide range of themes.

The initiative is coordinated in Wales by the Books Council of Wales and supported by the Welsh Government. 

These short, entertaining books are aimed at adults who find reading a struggle or who’ve lost the habit of reading. They’re also perfect for readers who are short of time!
