Explore in October

October 1, 2012
tags: ,

This month’s theme is explore. You can explore the past, and read about ancient, modern or own your family history (who knows what skeletons you may find rattling around in the closet!).

Explore the present. The here and now, fact and fiction. You might like to explore a genre you haven’t read before. If you usually read romance, try reading adventure, or about pirates! Why not read more about Australian explorers, or explore something you’ve always wanted to learn more about.

Explore the endless possibilities of the future. Now’s the time to read some science fiction, with its fantastic yet possible and plausible worlds and futures.

Explore new technologies to find new ways to read. Download a book and read it on an ereader, follow your favourite authors on twitter, find some facts in databases, or in an e-textbook on your tablet. Use your smartphone to read about the latest breaking news as it happens. Explore our world.

Are you planning a holiday? Explore some new countries and cultures by reading a travel guide, or try learning a new language-oui? Explore what’s out there, whether its the outback of Australia or outer space. Explore everything and anything. If its out there, you can read about it.

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

As well there will be a live twitter discussion 30 October starting at 8.00pm Australian Eastern Daylight Time. Use the tag #NYR12 as you discuss your explorations.
