Great news for fiction readers

There are a pile of new fiction books by my bed, even more on my reserve list. I need a holiday where I can go to a remote location, turn off my phone and just read. I'm starting to panic that I won't get through them, and I want to read them all because they sound so good! 

It seems that COVID has produced a windfall of good books, especially from debut authors.  In my job as fiction selector, I keep being amazed by the rave reviews I am reading, and the amount of new books, (especially by debut authors) seems more than usual.  Mind you, this time last year was a different story, so no doubt publishers have been holding off and they are all coming at once.  Whatever the reason — it is great news for fiction readers.
