Reading Resources

The only things we really need are books, but there’s a whole industry sprung up around literature, from merchandise to reading accessories and with eReading added into the mix, books are big business.

The reading resources section is full of everything you might need as a reader and we’re always looking for more too, so if you know about something you think the readers will like, do let us know!

On this page you’ll find links to all our Reading Resources from bookshops, free books, free reading apps and more!
