Registered charity The Reading Agency has just launched the Road to Reading, a 10 week initiative that challenges people to read for 30 minutes each week and see the difference it can make to their life. This is perfect for those who have never been great readers and for those who haven’t picked up a book for a long while. Those taking part will receive reading recommendations such as quick reads, plus tips and useful advice to get you into enjoying books.

The Reading agency highlights the benefits of reading which includes boosting self-esteem, sparking curiosity, connecting us to others and supporting our mental health. Adults who read for just 30 minutes a week report greater life satisfaction and feeling more socially included.
