Most of us could stand to devote more time to reading. We make room in our busy schedules for the latest seasons of our favorite TV shows, but we don’t put enough time aside for books.

If you’re looking for something to keep you occupied before bed or on your commute to work this June, we suggest checking out Amazon’s Best Books of the Month, a section of the site wholly dedicated to new releases in literature and fiction, nonfiction, history, and more.

You’ll find a spotlight pick (this month’s is “The Ministry of Utmost Happiness” by Arundhati Roy) along with nine other books that Amazon’s book editors loved this month.

For anyone looking for a book to read at the beach or on your couch, this list is a good place to start your search.
