Relax, Read, Win!


It’s here – the reading competition for adults!

All you have to do is:


Breathe in, breathe out; congratulate yourself on a busy year.


Choose four books to read this summer based on the descriptions in the reading grid. Your challenge is to select descriptions that make a straight line on the grid. Browse and borrow from Hume Libraries’ collection of books, either in-branch or online through our free cloudLibrary and BorrowBox eBook apps.


Strike a line through the reading grid, filling in the titles as you go. Then return your entry to any Hume Libraries branch to go in the draw to win one of three bundles of best-selling books!

Think of Relax, Read, Win as bingo for reading...

Draw a straight line through the four boxes that describe the four books that you are reading this summer. Your line may go across, down or diagonally on the grid but it must be straight. Write the four different titles that you read in those boxes. Once you have completed a line, bring your completed entry to any Hume Libraries branch to go in the draw to win. Don’t forget to write the titles in as you go.
