The Australian Reading Hour

The Australian Reading Hour is an important annual campaign encouraging Australians of all ages to read. The premise is simple – pick up a book at any time of the day or night and read for an hour.  The 2017 campaign promises to be bigger and better, by building on the success of previous years. Run by ALIA’s Australian Public Library Alliance between 2012 and 2016; 2017’s Australian Reading Hour is supported by the Australian Library and Information Association, the Australian Society of Authors, the Australian Publishers Association, the Australian Booksellers Association, and the Copyright Agency Cultural Fund.

So far, audiobooks have been my life saver. But I’ll catch up with physical reading soon!

#TheReadingQuest Update 1

I completed my first book!

View my Goodreads review here (it has also been added to this blog’s queue). I read The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh. I enjoyed the story, and it received 3/5 stars.

The story was based of Arabian Nights.

Next I will read Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard. I have read this before and did not like it. Finger’s crossed I do this time!

 

This week is flooded with uni assessments and exams, so bear with me.

IN OTHER NEWS… 

peaces_icons-harrumphI’ve had beef with somebody who’s being a shark on the book blogs and forums participating. This woman is going around on teenager’s accounts and discounting their reading; taking this reading challenge way too far. I scavenged the web to see if other #TheReadingQuest participants were being attacked, and indeed there were. In particular: teen girls. Not cool, Miss ‘I like to spend my time trying to argue with minors who are just trying to have some fun while reading’.

 

I’ve been obsessed with The Office (U.S.) lately. Half way through season 3, it just clicked. I suddenly understood the humour.

 

Okay back to assignments and study…
