After reading a gripping fictional account of a time or place, have you ever wished you knew more about what actually happened? If so, then Random House Publish Group has a treat for you. Their new e-book line of Reader’s Circle Deluxe Reading Group Editions comes complete with over fifty additional pages of nonfiction content that will answer questions and encourage book group discussions.
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows (one of RT’s Whitney’s all-time favorite reads) and Lisa See’s Snow Flower and the Secret Fan will be the first two e-books released in this extended e-format. The new editions have what Random House calls “exclusive, author-approved annotations” that are designed to “enrich” the reading experience. And each reader can decide if he or she wants to access this extra content while reading their books, or after they finish the story, tailoring the experience to their personal preference.
Guernsey Literary and Snow Flower both captured readers’ imaginations and are perennial book club favorites. Thus, these New York Times bestselling titles are logical picks to launch Random House’s new line.
