What is Reading for Pleasure? Does it figure in literacy organisations’ work? What do Governments think of it, and do they fund it?

Reading for Pleasure is one of the cross-cutting themes of the ELINET initiative. It is led by Book Trust as representative of EURead – an association of reading promotion practitioner organisations across Europe. This theme recognises that literacy promotion must involve more than the mechanics of letter and word recognition, or of functional comprehension. Children and adults must want to read, in the same way they want to experience life, for knowledge, pleasure and for their own personal growth.
