Tuesday 14 September is Australian Reading Hour which means it’s the perfect time to take a break and spend some time with a book!
This great project is facilitated by Australia Reads — a not-for-profit joint initiative of the Australian Booksellers Association, Australian Library and Information Association, Australian Publishers Association and the Australian Society of Authors working in collaboration with their members. They believe reading is the key to a smarter, healthier, happier nation. And we agree! Research shows that reading books can be a great way to improve your cognitive abilities, relax your body and lower your heart rate, and enhance how happy you are with life.
To get involved all you have to do is pick up a book!
