Reading Hour 2014 is Tuesday 19 August, 6-7pm so cancel your plans, forget the housework and settle back with an old favourite or new book.
Reading seems to be considered a luxury these days but it is without a doubt one of the best things you can do for the mind and soul. All the research backs it up! If you’re not a regular reader, why not take the chance to become a member of the library and indulge in some quality reading?
This year’s Reading Hour ambassador is actor and writer William McInnes, who says ‘Reading makes me think about the world that’s been…makes me think about the world that is…and makes me think about the world that could be.’
Author and actor William McInnes is the official ambassador for Reading Hour 2014.
The Reading Hour initiative reminds parents and caregivers that reading together doesn’t have to be a massive undertaking in their busy lives, and that sharing a book with a child for ten minutes a day – or just over an hour a week – will still give that child the best chance of becoming a good reader later in life, along with all the social and educational benefits it brings.
Discover and rediscover the joy of reading. Take an hour out of your day on Tuesday 19 August and sit back with a good book.
The Reading Hour supports all reading and literacy-related initiatives with the shared aim to unite everyone working together toward Australia becoming a nation of readers under one banner.
