Browsing Hour at GWL, National Libraries Day 2013

Looking for something to read that’s a little bit different? Overwhelmed by rows of books and don’t know where to start? Then look no further – we’ve hand-picked books old and new to inspire, suprise and challenge you. You can check out our latest recommended reads and reviews below (or browse through them all here).

Whether you’re a book lover or just starting out on your reading journey, our weekly Story Cafe is a great source of new ideas – we try different writers and styles every week.

Take a look at our Reading for Wellbeing recommendations for books that other women have found inspiring, nourishing, uplifting or even just downright funny.
