Win a box full of summertime reading

Fiction, non-fiction and plenty for both young and old, we've got you covered for the summer

Your bags are packed, you’ve stuffed them into the car or made the unnecessarily frantic two-hour early rush to the airport. Your summer holiday is in full swing. But what about that all-important poolside read? We’ve got your back!

And even if you’re not heading off to warmer climates, our bumper box of books is just the ticket to help you chill out at home. We’re giving one lucky reader the chance to win a box full of summer reads. From bestsellers to the perfect beach read, there’s bound to be a book for you.

The bundle includes Ronnie O’Sullivan’s Double Kiss, the latest new Thorne thriller from Mark Billingham, Love Like Blood and Sympathy, the debut novel from Olivia Sudjic. Plus many, many more books – fiction and non-fiction – with great reads for young and old.

If you’re inspired to discover more great new books to read, check The Big Issue’s Summer Reading Guide, where our books editor and celebrity friends share their top picks for summertime reading.
