Read while Waiting project starts this Saturday, August 23rd, 2008

The Read While Waiting project comes out of the Random Alphabets group in Malaysia. The YouTube video below explains it - of how this Saturday they are hoping to start a world wide movement encouraging people to pick up the practice of reading while waiting for buses etc, or wherever they are with time on their hands.

Curiously I have always been someone who gets twitchy if I don't have something to read in my shoulder bag. However, these days I get equally, if not more stressed, if I don't have a a pen and notebook to hand as well. So a parallel campaign to reassert the power and influence of the 'common place book' might also be fun. In short, for me, its increasingly a read/write world.

"When I was 5 I was given a present..."
That said - lets hear it for the RWW posse - definitely worth three minutes of your attention if only for the quote from Sean Connery - 'it's that simple, and that profound'
And thanks to Paula E from NZ School Librarians Group for the reference.

Hi Paul,

Thanks for the post. It's brilliant for the project. It's also being picked up in Perth, Melbourne, Sydney, Singapore & Eindhoven.

Would you be interested in doing the Auckland Chapter? I'll set up a Facebook page for it and you could plug it on your blog.

I'll be on the Breakfast Show of a national tv station and it would be brilliant to mention that Auckland is in it as well.

aber einen Replica Rolex watches Erfolg kann man ihr jetzt schon zuschreiben: Ohne sie und Apples intensive Bemuhungen Watches Replica sowie Investitionen auf diesem Gebiet wurde der Rest der Uhrenindustrie wahrscheinlich UK Replica watches noch heute tief im Dornroschenschlaf liegen. Es labt sich kaum anders erklaren, warum ausgerechnet jetzt selbst Replica Rolex Watches solche Marken mit “smarten” Uhren auf den Markt kommen, die noch vor ein paar Designer handbags Jahren.
