Get Reading!

Check out the Get Reading website.  This is an Australian Initiative and has just the most lovely website.  Browse through their book of the 50 Books you can’t put down  Turn up your sound so that you can hear the pages turning.  Download the Pdf files, and enjoy the sheer loveliness of this well designed book site.  You could spend quite a lot of time on here.

This year it runs from 24 August to 30 September.  Well supported by the Australian government this initiative is similar to what we have here as Bookmonth, but of course they have so much more funding and Australia is a much bigger country I suppose, therefore I allow their site to be so very slick in comparison to ours.

There is a You Tube Channel and you can find it here.  Lots of Ozzie literary, celebrity and sporty types talking about what is going on, and speaking about reading.

    Thank you for blogging this – it is a great website! Some of the activites on the ‘Kid’s Room’ page would be great to use, especially in a primary school. And I just might have to challenge myself to see how many of the 50 books I can read.
