Watch This Cute Get Reading! 2012 Animation
Everybody knows someone who says they don’t read. I understand that reading isn’t everybody’s passion but it still rubs me the wrong way when a person says they don’t read in a tone that implies reading is embarassing, stupid, socially sneered at or ridiculous. Reading is fun for everybody! I am adamant that there is a book with your name on it!
In September there will be a huge campaign run by Get Reading! in Australia that will be aimed at getting people to pick up a book (whether eBook or print). They have already released this cute YouTube video. Most people who are reading this blog don’t need any incentive to read, but if you know anybody who hasn’t picked up a book in awhile, maybe you should send them this link.
Get Reading! is Australia’s largest celebration of books and reading. Their mission is to inspire all Australians to grab a book and get reading! Previously called Books Alive, Get Reading! is an excellent government initiative developed through the Australia Council for the Arts that encourages all Australians to discover the joy of books and reading, while also supporting Australian writers, booksellers, libraries, and publishers.
