2012 National Year of Reading Monthly themes – The Amazing Read – January catch up

You may have seen these forms in your local branch of the Blue Mountains Library and wondered “what on earth?”

They are for you  to let us know, quickly and simply, what you’ve been reading that might fit with the monthly theme for the National Year of Reading. Each month we will gather the forms together and list here what you’ve written down so you can share your reading. Unfortunately, extended sick leave since early March has meant we are now several months behind so here you will have January to April. After that we should be a monthly item.

So here’s our feedback from you, it has started slowly but seems to be getting up steam.
