Now that we’re staying in more, it’s a good time to get reading.
Books – in whatever shape, size, or form – are a great way to unwind, to learn new things, discover new stories, and feel all kinds of emotions.
Books help you learn and explore.
Reading makes your world bigger and makes more things possible. Literacy and reading are tools that can help you achieve your goals  and help others. So, being able to read can improve your life and the lives of the people around you.
You can show your support by taking the pledge to read this November!
Want to find out more? We’d love to hear your stories about the way reading helps you enjoy, learn, grow and connect.

Are you ready for Australia Reads?
Ok, take a deep breath, and repeat after us.
“I will read for an hour on Thursday 12 November.
I will read books in any shape, form or size.
I will read, whether with bumps, letters, pictures, sound.
I will read to myself or someone else.”
