Private Peaceful is the Abingdon Community Read this summer as promoted by Our Ladies Abingdon. They are hoping that people will read and leave comments abut the book.
Abingdon Library has a Summer Reading Challenge, with postcards you can fill in:
- Tell us about a book you’ve read…
- Which three books would you recommend?
- What is your personal reading challenge this year?
Mostly Books and The Abingdon Bookstore are promoting both these events, and Mostly Books has its own summer reading special.
The Head Teacher of the school where I am a Governor signed off the end of term newsletter, after goodbyes to Year 6’s, with “Have a great summer and please ensure that your children read daily, it keeps the mind sharp!”
