Bookmarks: July 19

It is a SCORCHER out there, Savvy Readers! Make sure you are staying hydrated and staying cool. Preferably with a good book.

1. 50 books for less than $5 each?! Yes, please!


You only have one more week to take advantage of this amazing deal, Savvy Readers! From now until July 26th, we’re making your reading goal easier to meet than ever. Not only easier, actually… Cheaper, too! We have FIFTY of our 50 Book Pledge Featured Reads priced at less than $5 each at all Canadian e-retailers! That means you can get any of the books listed here and below on Apple iBooksKoboGoogle Play, and Amazon Kindle for up to 90% OFF (!!!!). Yes, you read that correctly. Learn more here!

2. CBC has some recommendations for all you historical fiction readers!


If you’re looking for a book to cool off with during this heat wave, why not give one of these great historical fiction reads a shot? While all of the books on this list are fantastic, of course, we especially love Washington Black by Esi EdugyanThe Gown by Jennifer Robson, and The Quintland Sisters by Shelley Wood! You can see the whole list here.

3. IT: Chapter Two officially has a full-length trailer and oh boy, here we go again…


Pennywise is back to terrorize Derry, and we can’t be more excited (and also terrified, obviously). If you’re a horror lover, you’ll definitely want to check out the trailer! If you’re not – or if you’re scared of clowns like I am (thanks to the ORIGINAL IT!) – then maybe skip this one. Either way, this trailer release got us thinking: What is the scariest character you’ve ever read and why? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter!

That’s all we’ve got for today, Savvy Readers! Did we miss anything important? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter @SavvyReader!

Happy reading and stay cool,
