Reading Out Loud Without Barriers
During the Hook into Books campaign, we’re asking you to tell us what books hooked you?

Reading is one of the most important ways to develop the mind, encourage creativity and embrace imagination. Not only because it’s one of the most effective way to learn, but because it's accessible to all and it does not discriminate or divide.
Books can teach us, they can move us, give us new perspectives, and help shape who we are and who we become. The most powerful books can change our lives forever. However, not every book hooks us, Francis Bacon said it best:
“Some books should be tasted, some devoured, but only a few should be chewed and digested thoroughly.”
Australian Authors Samantha Wheeler share with us how they were Hooked Into Books in the below videos. You can find all our Hook into Books videos here!
If you love to jump in front of the camera and have a book you are bursting to tell us about why not create your own vlog and share it on Instagram or Facebook?
Be sure to hashtag #LifeWithoutBarriers and #HookIntoBooks and tag the below accounts!
