Just in – our first Extreme Reading Photo of this summer! Many thanks to our mystery reader(no prizes for guessing who it is though!). Have a look at this Animoto of a selection of previous years’ photos. Perhaps we could plot a map of all the various locations where the reading took place this year and compile a list of all the book titles? Creative photos from your local area or back garden just as welcome as more exotic locations.
You could win a Kobo e-reader!
Don’t forget to send us your Extreme Reading Photos for the summer holiday competition. Here’s a very late entry from last year. It’s Mr Townley on the Hannibal Alps trip. We’re hoping for some good ones from this year’s Classics trip walking the length of Hadrian’s Wall.
Email your entries to: firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet them to @welly_library.
