More Books, More often

Here at Australia Reads, our goal is to get more people reading more books, more often. 

Through our range of research, programs, and initiatives we advocate for the benefits of books and reading to Australian society.

Open up a world of good

Whether reading aloud with others or between the covers by ourselves, people have always loved stories. Books and storytelling are how we connect, understand, and find joy in the world around us.

And research tells us know that reading for pleasure reduces stress, improves memory, and increases feelings of wellbeing.
