It’s the Children’s Book Council of Australia’s Book Week which means that across the country, primary schools are gearing up for a bunch of fun reading activities, culminating in book parades where kids get to dress up as characters from their favourite books.
Heh which in practice means that they figure out who they want to dress up as (princesses and Batman) and then try to find a book that fits it. BUT NEVER MIND THAT.
I decided this year I want to do something fun on the blog to celebrate Book Week, as I usually forget about it until it’s too late. So I’m going to write some posts about my childhood reading, not only favourite books, but how I read them and why I still remember them.
If anyone out there wants to join me in blogging about their childhood in books, please let me know about your posts, either in comments, by Twitter (@tansyrr) or via email to tansyrr (at) gmail dot com. I’d love to be able to do a round up next weekend of various people blogging about their childhood reading and the books that made them happy.
