Get Reading! is Australia's largest annual celebration of books and reading. Previously known as Books Alive, Get Reading! is a month-long, nationwide campaign to encourage more Australians to discover or rediscover the pleasure of reading books. The campaign is an Australian Government initiative developed through the Australia Council for the Arts. In 2011 Get Reading! runs from Monday, 29 August to Thursday, 30 September.
Visit the official Get Reading website for news and events, first chapter downloads, reviews, and a downloadable "50 books you can't put down" guide (available soon). Titles on the Get Reading! list will be available to borrow from Libraries ACT.
