Welcome to 2012, the National Year of Reading.
Let’s make the most of this year and truly celebrate reading, a joy that we often take for granted. Reading is a gift; it changes lives and can bring endless hours of pleasure. Whether we read stories to our children, discover a book that will help in our careers, skim through pages of delicious recipes or lose ourselves in a novel, reading can make a difference to the way we live.
In Reading Women, we will celebrate the many facets of reading, starting with ‘What to Read Next’ – a range of themes and ideas that will change every week. We’ll also look at the work of different authors, publishers, libraries and booksellers.
