What’s a Book Sampler?
Book Samplers combine short excerpts from different books, and they’re designed to make discovering and selecting new books on DailyLit easier. They are created around unique topics to help readers find new books in categories they enjoy. Each book installment featured in the Book Samplers contains a link that lets readers instantly access the book on DailyLit to read or send as a gift using DailyLit’s gift feature. Readers can also easily add the book to their To-Read list on the DailyLit site. Reading a Book Sampler is like browsing in your favorite section of the bookstore—it’s a fun way to find that next great book. We’ll be updating the Samplers as we get new books, so you can keep up with what’s new in your favorite categories.
