How much do we love books? So much! 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 we know that reading for pleasure reduces stress, improves memory and increases feelings of wellbeing.
Here at Australia Reads, our goal is to get more people reading more books, more often. We aim to provide you with the tools and inspiration to find your next great read, discover Australian authors you love and connect with a community of fellow readers.
To support this we work with partners to run amazing author events and reading initiatives, including our flagship Australian Reading Hour annual national event.
We also gather reading research and industry insights to share and connect across businesses, community organisations, libraries and schools.
And we just happen to have hundreds of great Australian authors on our books – quite literally!
