Forget that stack of books lined up for half term: The TES has something more exciting for you to read. We'd like keen, opinionated readers to kick off discussion on our summer reading list of contemporary fiction and non-fiction in paperback and inspire others to try books that they enjoy (or enjoy hating). Volunteers will be sent a free paperback and asked to fax or e-mail us with brief responses. Some will be incorporated into a weekly reading group column which will run over the summer holidays. There will be a small fee for those whose contributions we use. For more details and a list of books to choose from, fax Colette O'Neill on 0171 782 3200, e-mail (friday@ tes.co.uk) or write to Summer Reading, Books Department, The TES, 66-68 East Smithfield, London E1 9XY. Applications by May 21 please.
