About Australian Reading Hour

Australian Reading Hour encourages all Australians to pick up a book and escape in its pages for an hour. It is intended to encourage young, lapsed and committed readers to escape, relax, learn and experience the wonderful world of books. It doesn’t matter what time of day you pick up the book, just dedicate one hour to the cause!
