So it’s 2012, which means it’s the first day of the National Year of Reading. There will be heaps of reading related stuff happening all across the country from now until 2013. While the National Year of Reading. will be officially launched on Tuesday 14th February (stay tuned for details of Cockburn Libraries’ launch event) you can get involved right now with the National Year of Reading Twitter Reading Group 

‘To celebrate the  joys of reading, each month in 2012 readers will be reading around a particular theme.  As well as discussing what they are reading in book groups, at their local library and with friends and family, some readers will also be tweeting about their reading. To be involved in this reading group, you don’t have to tweet – you can just read along each month if you like.’

January’s theme is The Amazing Read
