What Are You Reading on Your Vacation?

In Discussion by Edward Nawotka

By Edward Nawotka, Editor-in-Chief

So, with the summer vacation season upon us, we surveyed UK publishers to ask what they were packing for the beach, their summer house in France or other distant environs. We got a variety of answers that included a lot of literature and perhaps one too many galleys.

Publishers can’t help but try and use the summer months to catch up on a backlog of manuscripts and forthcoming books for the fall. The rest of us can take something off of our shelves at leisure. So tell us, what are you reading on your vacation this year?
