The Reading Hour - join in the fun!

Monday, 20 August 2012


The National Year of Reading has been a formidable force in the fight against illiteracy and very soon, a major, nation-wide event - The Reading Hour - will occur. On Saturday 25 August, from 6pm to 7pm, you are invited to pick up a book.
You can read alone. 

You can read with a friend. 

You can (please) read with your children. 

If you can dedicate the entire hour - fantastic. If you only have 10 minutes, that's also good.

If you want to, you can even hunt down a special Reading Hour event - see the NYR12 website events calendar for more.

To celebrate The Reading Hour, we've organised a special online event over at Kids Book Review. Every day, sometimes several times a day, we will be posting photos of ourselves reading a book on the KBR website and on our facebook page. You will also have a chance to post your own pictures of yourself or your kids or your class, reading a book.

me, husband, Ella and Riley - reading up!

We will choose our favourite photos each day and post them on the KBR website.

On Saturday 25 August, we will award some prizes . . . our three favourite photos will win a book and our most prolific photo poster will win a stack of brand new books to the value of over $100! That's right.

Head to KBR's facebook page now for this wonderful chance to win* - and most importantly - for this chance to show us what an amazingly readerly bunch our KBR friends are!

*Competition is open to Australian residents only.

Such a cool idea. I'm struggling to finish a book a friend gave me, on a huge recommendation, it's not my cup of tea, so i kind of want it over & done with, it's not bad, but not my idea of entertainment (the subject) so i'll thumb my way through to the end, love Posie

Miss Posie, in my humble opinion, you simply should NOT finish that book. There is far too much to read and enjoy in this world to bother even one NANOSECOND with something that doesn't immediately engage you. Let go!! Txx
