Although Richard and Judy's show will be leaving our screens next month, their successful creation Richard & Judy's Book Club will live on through the wonders of the internet. The show brought reading into many people's lives as Richard and Judy invited guests to discuss the novels being read by the book club and also encouraged viewers to call in and share their own opinions.

The success of the book club made Richard and Judy become very powerful people in the British publishing industry. When they nominated titles as best reads or book of the year, those books would quickly sell out and hugely exceed their expected sales figures. If an author got a thumbs up from Richard and Judy, they were guaranteed success. Richard and Judy even have a special category for book of the year in the British Book Awards. Past winners have been successful novels such as Labyrinth by Kate Mosse, The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold and A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini.

For summer this year, the book club has selected 8 titles to get stuck into. If you are really impressed, you can go to the book club's website and vote for your favourite. You can also use the site to form a reading group so that you can meet like-minded book lovers. These are the chosen books for this summer: Past Imperfect by Julian Fellowes, Guernica by Dave Boling, Palace Council by Stephen L. Carter, Mr Toppit by Charles Elton, The Great Lover by Jill Dawson, Mystery Man by Bateman, The Senator's Wife by Sue Miller and The Piano Teacher by Janice Y.K. Lee.
