“What is NZ Book month?” I hear you ask?
Quite simply, the idea is to get more of us reading New Zealand books.
Kiwis are a nation of readers. On a global scale, we are highly literate and recent surveys show that many of us wouldn’t think about relaxing without a good book.
The guys behind NZ Book Month want more of those books we read to be ones that have been written by New Zealand writers, to celebrate and showcase the brilliant writing talent we have, to support upcoming writers in our country, and show you that whatever your taste, there’s a fantastic New Zealand book for you.
I’m going to do my part and review some great kiwi authors during September so when your brain threatens to implode from work/life overload, you can chill out by reaching for a guaranteed grand kiwi read and support NZ Book Month.
For more information visit the NZ Book Month website for all sorts of great book competitions, info, kiwi celebs talking about their favourite books (including the swoon worthy John Campbell - *drool*) author news and much more!
