Large Print Selection - August 2014

Well the summer is here and what with staff holiday and late deliveries last month we didn't get a chance to send our normal email with a selection of books so this month we present a slightly bigger choice than normal with our pick of books from both July and August.
Among those featured is Eeny Meeny, a fantastic debut book by M. J. Arlidge which has been chosen by Richard and Judy as a summer read and one which I (the editor) can say was a thoroughly good read. Other highlights include And the Mountains Echoed which is available again in Large Print and the autobiography of Mary Berry who is once again appearing on our television screens in the new series of The Great British Bake Off on BBC1. All these and many more are available from the Large Print Bookshop.
