Just thought I would post a reading promotion poster I did for school.  I made up several posters of staff with an assortment of books, their personal favourites where possible, added a quote usually from the book they choose, or a general quote about reading and stuck them up in the library.  This one I did of myself, so I had the luxury of choosing a nice large book to hide behind and of taking the photo at home in a comfy chair with one of the cats beside me.  A workmate also did up some great posters using photoshop of staff on the cover of favourite books, we also managed to get some photos of the kids reading.  Did these in A3 so they were large enough to read the text and generally get attention, now if we could just get more kids reading and reading more often that would be great.   Oh and the quote, I have added that below in text large enough to read, it is a great quote on the power of reading:

“There’s nothing better for you – not broccoli, not an apple a day, not aerobic exercise. In terms of the whole rest of your life, in terms of making you smart in all ways, there’s nothing better. Top-ranking scientists and mathematicians are people who read. Top-ranking historians and researchers are people who read. Reading is like money in the bank in terms of the rest of your life, but it also helps you escape from the rest of your life and live experiences you can only dream of. Most important, along with writing, reading is the best way I know to find out who you are, what you care about, and what kind of person you want to become.”
