Looking for your next book club read? Need some ideas to run by the other club members? Or just looking for something new to read for yourself?
Meet WANDERLUST! This is a great new idea from the bookies over at Simon & Schuster. It's the launch of the second free, downloadable book club sampler—WANDERLUST: A Book Club Sampler from Simon & Schuster.
Simon and Schuster says that Wanderlust pays homage to a book's unique ability to transport your imagination around the world. Wanderlust features excerpts from the following titles: Day of Honey: A Memoir of Food, Love, and War by Annia Ciezadlo, Wildflower Hill by Kimberley Freeman, The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman,Amaryllis in Blueberry by Cristina Meldrum, The Hundred-Foot Journey by Richard C. Morais, The Distant Hours by Kate Morton, This Burns My Heart by Samuel Park, and last but not least, An Atlas of Impossible Longing by Anuradha Roy.
Each excerpt is accompanied by a note from the author, the reading group guide, and the author's response to the question What is your favorite travel memory? Their answers are great.Anuradha Roy, author of An Atlas of Impossible Longing, says it best: "All readers of fiction carry within themselves sediments of the places they have traveled to in books, the people they've met on the way. Therefore the strange deja vu is when you land in a foreign country and wonder if you've been there before."
How cool is that?
