Six exciting new Galaxy® Quick Reads titles have been announced by The Reading Agency including bestselling crime writer C.L. Taylor


Five fiction titles and one non-fiction book make up this year’s selection to be published on 2 February 2017 and the Dead Simple crime anthology (Orion) will bring together C.L. Taylor with seven other writers including Mark Billingham, Clare Mackintosh and Angela Marsons.


Quick Reads titles are specifically designed to be easy to read, and are shorter and easier to tackle for adults who are less confident in their reading skills. The accessible, bite-size format means they’re also perfect for people who want a light, easy read to pick up for their commute or to fit into a busy day.


One in six adults in the UK struggles with reading,1 whilst one in three does not read for pleasure, and Quick Reads will next year continue its work to break down the barriers that prevent people from picking up a book. 95% of literacy practitioners report that using Quick Reads has been effective at raising learners’ confidence to read, whilst 91% say that the books have been effective at improving readers’ literacy skills.


We’re absolutely delighted to be supporting our author C.L. Taylor who is taking part in this incredible scheme.
