After a very successfull 2010 Librarians Reading Challenge, the NSW Readers Advisory Group are inviting library staff to take part in the 2011 Librarians Reading Challenge. You can also participate in the 2011 Twitter Reading Group.
Each month in 2011, you are encouraged to read items on a set theme and to then post your choices in the corresponding month on the NSWRA wiki. Your reading experience on the topic for the month can vary from books and blogs to poetry, plays or essays.
Each month has a different theme.
January #suagb – Scare up a good book – This ties in with the national summer reading theme. Why should children be the only ones who can’t sleep? In January read scary titles, they could be true (scary takes of disaster, and scary tales of people’s lives) or stories of fiction (including horror).
February #heartreads Romance
March #specfic Fantasy
April #oznzreads – ANZAC and writers from both countries
May #grrlpower – Women
June #goreads – Travel
July #whodoneit – Crime
August #geekreads – Science
September #bookbites – Food
October #egoreads – Biography
November #moreads – Men with mustaches
December #summerreads – What to read when it’s hot ……… or hot-reading
In 2010 the challenge was to read something outside of your normal comfort zone, try different genres and it was a lot of fun. The entries all make interesting reading. Have a peek here.
The Twitter Reading Group (and blog) is an opportunity to run programs for the broader library clients and online communities. This is an online reading group, one that involves microblogging, blogging and taking pictures about reading. Through this program, we will be encouraging our clients to tweet, blog or post photographs about what they are reading. This is also an opportunity to engage with online users who are not currently library users. For more information click here.
The RA Group would like to see staff to take up the challenge for 2011 with the same enthusiasm from 2010 and look forward to your comments on the wiki and on twitter. Happy reading to all.Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( 3 so far )
