Exclusive Books has timeless and modern reads of fiction, non-fiction, young adult and children’s titles on the recommended reading list for July and available in store at one of its 42 branches or online, phone and through Uber Eats.
“The past two years have proved again how perennial favourites classics are for a reason — their appeal is timeless and always relevant.
“Two books on this month’s Exclusive Books Recommends illustrate the unmatched appeal of classics but reimagined for the next generation of readers. Enid Blyton’s Magic Faraway Tree — a brand new story by Britain’s favourite contemporary author, Jacqueline Wilson, but based on Wilson’s favourite book as a child — and Axel Sheffler’s Mother Goose’s Nursery Rhymes – classic nursery rhymes but fresh and original from Sheffler, The Gruffalo’s magic illustrator,” said Batya Bricker, GM of Exclusive Books’ marketing, loyalty and procurement.
Fanatics members earn a whopping 200 bonus points on their purchases from the list during July.
Exclusive Books’ recommended titles are merchandised in front of all their stores every month and are carefully curated in different categories.
The aim is to assist customers to see at a glance titles that are new, trending and have caught the eyes of the Exclusive Books buyers among thousands of titles.
There are choices for all genre tastes, and now the dedicated EBR for children will offer an even wider and deeper rage for younger readers.
“Of course, new and future classics are in the making all the time, and the EBR List features dozens of these,” said Bricker.
