The National Year of Reading is an Australian based and run initiative that encourages Australian people, especially youths, to discover the power and enjoyment of reading.
After being asked to be a state youth ambassador (you can find me on this page 3/4 down the page) for the year of reading, I got really excited and decided to share the news.
As part of the NYOR, there are many events that are happening: whether they are National, State Wide or Online, if you live in Australia, why don't you get involved?
You can find out about writing competitions, weekly events for each state and more here, at The Book Slooth.
So stay tuned for more information when the National Year of Reading comes to you!
