Places to Read Bingo SheetThis summer we are challenging you to read in as many different places as possible!
You can read anything you like – a book, an e-book, a comic or magazine, fiction or non-fiction, or listen to an audiobook.
If you have to stay at home this summer there are still lots of unusual places you can find to read!

Top reading tips!

  • Audiobooks are great for listening to on journeys – you can listen with headphones or the whole family can listen together. Funny books are great for this!
  • You could choose a book about animals or nature to read outside; that way you can learn about the insects, plants and animals you can see around you while you’re out and about.
  • E-books are handy for reading on the go: you can read them on a smartphone or tablet which is easy to carry around with you (you might want to get your grownup to look after this for you!).
  • There are hundreds of e-books, audiobooks and magazines for kids on RB Digital and BorrowBox, and they are all free for library members. There are lots of famous authors on there, like David Walliams, and popular book series like Alex Rider, Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Harry Potter. Or you might like to explore and discover your new favourite!

We'd love to hear how you get on with our reading challenge this summer. You can ask your grownup to get in touch on our Facebook page @CBClibraries.
