Books can inform, educate, inspire, transform your life, spark ideas, dreams and entertain you. They evoke memories and fuel your wanderlust to visit the areas they are set in. Walk in the literary footsteps of the characters and protagonists in the books and immerse yourself into a literary other-world.

The Reading Agency’s own research tells us that reading expands how people think and allows new perspectives, supports health and wellbeing, and increases people’s ability to learn new skills, as well as bringing joy!
