How to read 24 books (or more) in one year Here’s a bigger challenge for those who are already a part of The Brunch Book Challenge: convert someone new. We all know too many people who don’t read, get one of them to start reading and join the challenge! To keep the ball rolling, we got in touch with publishing houses and they’ve sent us free copies of some fantastic new titles for our readers. The first 24 books go out to an assortment of participants: the first tweeters, the most regular tweeters, the ones who have the most endearing things to say. So here’s the first lot...
