The READ IN 2012 theme: Read the World
"It doesn't matter how you read the world, only that you do it. Read." - Donna Livingstone, Director, University of Calgary Press
Reading is a treasure that we can all enjoy at any stage of our lives. Reading about people, places and events in the world expands your horizons and broadens your mind. Like exercise for your muscles, reading keeps your brain active and fit all through life! Reading can be for entertainment, learning or self-discovery and can be shared with family, friends and strangers.
