The Avid Reader July 2007

Dear Book Lover,

If you're wanting to escape the summer heat in an air conditioned movie theater, but are worried about not being able to read in the dark, opt for a compromise: use our Books to Film guide to find movies that are based on brilliant books. You can also take an armchair safari with books on Kenya, discover more Lost Classics, and check out our most expensive books sold in June.

Happy Reading!
