This season as the temperature drops, we want you to make time for yourself every day. Warm up with a book from Our Library this winter. Track your reading to be in the running to win bookish prizes.

The Warm Winter Read aims to encourage adult readers (16+) across Victoria to create healthy reading habits by tracking the days participants read over June, July and August. If you always mean to read more often, but never get around to it, this is the challenge for you!

Listen to an audiobook on your commute to work, when walking the dog, or while completing household chores. Swap scrolling time for reading time or replace one episode of a binge-watch with a chapter (or two) of a great book.

We’ll even help you find your next great read by celebrating 40 fantastic books recommended by authors you love.

Our author ambassadors for 2024 are:

Matt Preston, Garry DisherPip Williams, Alison Goodman, Melissa Lucashenko, Dr Ahona Guha, Michael Earp and Shelley Parker-Chan

While reading is its own reward, you’ll also be in the running to win some great (state-wide) bookish prizes!
