Each year the Quick Reads organisation commissions big name authors to write short books that are specifically designed to be easy to read. They are the same as mainstream books in every respect but are simply shorter and easier to tackle for adults who are less confident in their reading skills. The books are then sold through major retailers and online booksellers and are loaned from libraries. Clare County Library will have the new 2014 Quick Reads titles available to borrow from branches in Ennis, Ennistymon, Kilrush, Scariff and Shannon to coincide with World Book Day 2014. Anyone who borrows a Quick Reads title from one of these branches on Thursday 6th March, either a new title or one from previous years, will receive a delicious complementary bar of Galaxy chocolate from Galaxy, the sponsors of Quick Reads.
