Welcome 2013!

Another exciting year has kicked off already.  Read Watch Play, run by the NSW Readers Advisory, has already had their online chat and digging deep into their February theme which is Heartread.

Last year, you would have seen the Love2ReadTV project which I created. Love2ReadTV will continue to be available on the project website for viewing and also on YouTube.

With the exciting continuation of the Love2Read brand, the Reading Hour will again be held in 2013.  The date is 24th August 2013, from 6pm-7pm, so mark it down in your diary!

With so much happening this 2013, all supporting reading, there’s never been a better time to dig in to a good book.  Visit your local library today!

December theme: love2read

2012 has been a very big year.  A packed NYR12 event calendar, combined with the inspiring support of so many libraries, organisations and individuals, has made it a year to be remembered.

This month, our reading theme is love2read.  Fittingly, it’s been the main message this entire National Year of Reading.  The love2read flower has made its way to many libraries across Australia, as well as bookshops, cars and cafes.

When we think about this theme, we should be considering how the National Year of Reading has changed us.  Perhaps you’ve tried a genre you’ve never ventured towards, or perhaps you’ve been inspired to read.  And as we enter the Christmas season, remember there’s nothing better than the gift of literacy.  Ideas include:-

  • The obvious one is a good book
  • Giving audiobooks
  • Donating to a worthy cause
  • Spending time with family, sharing a good story
  • Verbal storytelling
  • And many more

It’s been a big year, and shortly I’ll post a recap of this year’s NYR12 thoughts.  Make sure you subscribe (see right) to receive an email when it’s published.
