This Summer, the World comes toLondon and the South West for the 2012 Olympic Games. As part of the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad, libraries in Dorset and across the South West invite you to explore the world through your reading.
Adult readers are invited to take a voyage of discovery, by reading books from different continents and recording their reviews in the Passport.
We want you to be inspired by different cultures and as you cross the borders of the world, explore new ground outside your normal reading territory.
Read 6 books, one each from 5 continents plus one other of your choice and hand the tear out pages from the Passport in at your library. The pages may be displayed in the library and will also be entered into a prize draw to win a suitcase of books!
We’ve produced some book lists which you might like to use as a guide to help locate your reading destinations. These are just guides to get you started if you are stuck for ideas however as there’s a whole world of possibilities out there for you to read.
The Challenge runs from 11 June until 30 September, to be entered into the prize draw you need to have completed your journey and submitted your reviews by 1st October.
