Students and staff at Bradford College have been doing a lot of extra reading over the past 6 months. 158 took part in the Bradford College Big Read.
Quite a number confessed they didn’t like reading but then got hooked. One student commented:
“If there wasn’t a Challenge I wouldn’t have read as much.”
Library staff helped run a number of reading groups which were really enjoyed by the students, who
liked the chance to chat about books and all asked for them to continue next year. One favourite
was ‘Marley and Me’ by John Grogan. We held a Prize Draw and there were 13 Prize Winners. Prizes
were donated by Blackwell’s Bookshop, Wordery online bookstore and the College. Reading has
never been so rewarding!
