Reading

All things literature, literacy & libraries.

We are proudly book-obsessed.

 

While our directory is only just getting started, this is what we have planned for the theme of Reading:

We want to help you find new things to read. We want you to discover new book genres and authors. We want to showcase bookstores and libraries for you to visit. We want to give you ideas for events to attend where books are celebrated among fellow readers in the community. And we want to help you find useful book-related supplies which will bring joy to your reading life.

FINDING BOOKS: Bookshops; Used & antiquarian book dealers; Libraries; Book reviews; Book subscriptions; Literary journals; Trade magazines; Radio programs & podcasts about literature and books; Book blogs & newsletters and Bookseller associations. DISCOVERING A NEW GENRE: General & literary fiction; Mythology & folklore; Sci-fi & fantasy; Comics & graphic novels; Mystery, thrillers & horror; Romance; Historical fiction; Children's literature; Young adult; Travel literature; Non-fiction; Short stories and Essays. MINGLING WITH READERS: Book clubs; Book swaps; Readings & bookstore events; Literary festivals; Authors; Book launches and Literary awards. KEEPING A LIBRARY: Bookmarks, bookplates (ex-libris) & library supplies; Literary-themed candles; Keeping a reading journal; Bibliotherapy; Literacy organizations; Library associations and History of literature.
