What do you question by reading about it?

August 1, 2012

This month, question everything: fact and fiction. What you read, where you read it, why you read it and how? Question all sides of the issue, your beliefs, formats and why you read the genres you do. Do you have a favourite?

Mysteries? Thrillers? Fantasy? Question the content, the media, controversial issues, ethics, philosophies and politics.

What are you reading? A book, newspaper, a recipe, or a blog? Why are you reading it? To relax, to become informed, be entertained, or for pure escapism from reality? Is it riveting, relaxing, or required reading? How are you reading it? As an ebook, on your ipad, iphone or ereader, or in a more traditional format (aka the print version)?

Try reading a questionable book, whether its been banned somewhere or because its biased. Question what you are reading by joining a book group, or read outside your comfort zone to answer the question of why people read cult fiction, pulp fiction, science fiction or romance.

You can find the answers to many questions, just by reading.

When you are reading your questioning works, you might like to tweet using #NYR12 so that other people can have a conversation with you about your reading.

There will also be a live twitter discussion 28 August starting at 8.00pm Australian Eastern Standard Time. Use the tag #NYR12 as you discuss your questioning reading.
