Join the Road to Reading initiative! [World Book Night]

The Reading Agency has launched Road to Reading for World Book Night, a “Couch to 5k” for new and lapsed readers. By signing up, you’re pledging to read for 30 minutes a week, for 10 weeks.

Perfect for those who used to read more, but now struggle to find the time, or readers who haven’t picked up a book in a while, the Road to Reading invites everyone to pledge to read every week for 30 minutes, for a 10-week period.

To anyone taking part, The Reading Agency will be then sharing weekly tips, useful advice, reading recommendations and more, aimed at helping participants along the way. There will also be ideas for shorter reads from the Quick Reads series.

Regular readers can also join in by signing up and logging their reads, with survey insights feeding into a national study into reading and life satisfaction. The Reading Agency hopes that reading lovers will help to sign people up to take part, supporting their mission to get the nation reading.

Sign up to the Road to Reading is open from today at, with the challenge officially kicking off on World Book Night, during the Reading Hour (7-8pm) on Sunday 23rd April 2023.

Please share the challenge far and wide so as many people can get involved as possible! You can follow the latest developments on social media via: @WorldBookNight @ReadingAgency  #WorldBookNight #ReadingHour

Happy reading!
