Read a New Book Month: A Book a Day Keeps the Boredom Away.

Read a New Book Month: A Book a Day Keeps the Boredom Away.

When was the last time you picked up a good book and read it through? Probably not in some time, right? There could be various reasons, such as the workload you’ve experienced lately, the kids and all their activities and busyness, ag, and just life in general; we get it.

But this September, none of the above (or other) excuses will do during this month because it’s Read a New Book Month, and we encourage all adults and children alike to take a book, learn new things and ignite your imagination.

We challenge you to spend your lunchtime somewhat different by grabbing a quick bite and pop into the beautiful Sandton Library on Nelson Mandela Square to peacefully read at least one chapter of a book that caught your eye. This way, we guarantee you’ll finish a book in one month, if not sooner. If you read pretty fast while taking everything in, who knows, you might end up reading two more.

However, if you feel like reading should rather take place in a natural setting without distractions whatsoever, we suggest visiting one of Sandton’s breath-taking parks, throwing a blankie out and letting your imagination explore one of the following shortlisted, must-read books before the end of 2022.
