Australian Reading Hour

Thursday 14 September 2017
8:30 AM – 6:00 PM
Where the Wild Things Are

We are delighted to be participating in the Australian Reading Hour.

On Thursday 14 September, stop what you’re doing for one hour and pick up a book. Come and spend an hour reading at Avid Reader or at Where the Wild Things Are and we will give you a 10% discount on any Australian fiction or non fiction titles. You can even lock your phone away in our safe to ensure uninterrupted reading time! Other giveaways and competitions include: 

- Reading challenge - Whoever builds up the longest reading time will receive a mystery goodie bag (hint: there will be books). 

- Between 10am and 11am we will have continuous storytelling! Pop in and out or listen for the whole hour.

- Between 6pm and 7pm we will be staying open late to have a silent reading party (find out more here!).

Did you know reading has been shown to reduce stress by 68% more than listening to music, going for a walk, or having a cup of tea?
