Penguin books is bringing us four new releases this April and they all look pretty darn interesting.

AN ODE TO THE BEST REMEDY FOR BODY AND MIND FROM ONE OF THE WORLD’S LEADING EXPLORERS
‘After having put my shoes on and let my thoughts wander, I am sure of one thing – to put one foot in front of the other is one of the most important things we do.’
‘Erling Kagge is a philosophical adventurer – or perhaps an adventurous philosopher’ New York Times
From the bestselling author of Silence comes an illuminating examination of the joy of walking.
From those perilous first steps as a toddler, to great expeditions, from walking to work to trekking to the North Pole, Erling Kagge explains that he who walks goes further and lives better.
Walking is a book about the love of exploration, the delight of discovery and the equilibrium that can be found in this most simple of activities.
‘If you are a walker this book will resonate with you, if you have seldom or never walked this book should be compulsory reading’ Rosamund Young
‘A thought-proving and enjoyable book that revels in seeing the global in the local. Erling Kagge reveals new ways to view home and homo sapiens, and, as he travels leisurely, we grow slowly wiser.’ Tristan Gooley
‘Drawing on the experiences of Kagge’s extraordinary life in wild places, this is a book of great concentration‘ Robert Macfarlane, on Silence
‘A thoughtful book-length essay on a taken-for-granted human activity’ Kirkus
JACK REACHER NEVER LOOKS BACK . . . UNTIL NOW.
The most hotly anticipated paperback thriller of the year follows our hero Jack Reacher on a quest into his father’s past, and climaxes in the most blood-curdling ticking time bomb of an adventure yet.
The present can be tense . . .
A young couple trying to get to New York City are stranded at a lonely motel in the middle of nowhere. Before long they’re trapped in an ominous game of life and death.
But the past can be worse . . .
Meanwhile, Jack Reacher sets out on an epic road trip across America. He doesn’t get far. Deep in the New England woods, he sees a sign to a place he has never been – the town where his father was born. But when he arrives he is told no one named Reacher ever lived there. Now he wonders: who’s lying?
As the tension ratchets up and these two stories begin to entwine, the stakes have never been higher for Reacher.
That’s for damn sure.
