Read Your Way Through Summer With Book Tokens


The summer is here – and it marks the beginning of many opportunities. Namely, it provides the chance for students to throw themselves in a great book as they enjoy the months away from university. The pastime need not be expensive, especially when you can now save money with book tokens. The only question is: which text tickles your fancy? Here are a few routes you can go down with your reading from now until September.

The Classics

The classics can transport you into a world that only exists in books these days. The most popular texts from this genre include Emily Bronte’s ‘Wuthering Heights’ or Thomas Hardy’s ‘Jude the Obscure’. These stories tend to be rather sprawling and the texts are quite bulky, so you can expect to spend many hours from morning, noon and night reading away to see what happens next.


The right novel can fill you with different views of the world and help with your education. For instance, George Orwell’s ‘Animal Farm’ isn’t just an imaginative tale featuring horses, pigs and other talking animals. Instead, it can enlighten students on topics such as politics, history and sociology.


These days many stories are quickly turned into a television series before most people have had a chance to read the books. But while the world may be gripped by shows such as ‘Game of Thrones’ and ‘The Handmaids Tale’, they were borne from equally great books by George RR Martin and Margaret Atwood.


Books that fall into the category of ‘light reading’ deal with less hard-hitting themes and are usually quicker to finish. They’re perfect to fly through or simply to pick up whenever you’ve got a spare ten minutes. Additionally, they’re handy to pass around between friends and relatives if you want to share the experience. One suggestion would be ‘Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls’ by Elena Favilli and Francesca Cavallo.
