Presenting Our Books of the Month for November
Something wicked this way comes...
As the winter nights draw in, both our Fiction Book and Thriller of the Month lead the reader into dark, spine-chilling territory with tales of the uncanny and unhinged respectively. Fortunately, Claudia Hammond's The Art of Rest is sure to restore the equilibrium, whilst younger readers can enjoy a story of bold imagination set in Blitz-era London.

Drawing on a ground-breaking global study of rest, as distinct from sleep, Hammond's practical and inspiring book unravels the transformative benefits of quality downtime and the secrets of how to unwind.

Scottish Book of the Month
