The Big Jubilee Read

To mark Her Majesty's Platinum Jubilee, The Reading Agency have compiled a list of seventy novels, short story anthologies and poetry collections published in the Commonwealth since 1952.

An expert panel of librarians, booksellers and literature specialists has chosen seventy titles from a “readers’ choice” longlist with ten books for each decade of Her Majesty The Queen’s reign.

The list offers brilliant, beautiful and thrilling writing produced by authors from a wide range of Commonwealth countries over the last seventy years to engage all readers in the discovery and celebration of great books.

Spanning 31 countries and six continents, this truly international collection is a fitting tribute to the most widely travelled monarch in history.

The Big Jubilee Read will connect a broad range of readers across the UK with great Commonwealth reads, and will be supported by events and activities in libraries and bookshops, as well as resources to unite reading groups across the country.

It can increase our cardiovascular and pulmonary system (heart and lungs), increased muscles strenght, reduce body fat, help us to lose weight and many more other benefits. We can implement walking so easily into out daily routine. Take a stairs instead lift, walk to the shop instead driving, walking during lunch break, meet up with friends in the park... The list of ideas is endless and it only takes 30 minutes of brisk walk a day to make a huge difference on our health and state of mind. Being outside gives us more energy and make us happy, especially on a sunny day.

NATIONAL GARDENING WEEK 2 - 8 MAY

National Gardening week is run by Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) to raise awareness of gardening and horticulture, and to encourage people to get active outdoors with friends and family. Nature can have a huge impact on our mental health and wellbeing, especially during these difficult  times. 

“Plants and gardens have the power to uplift us and that's why we urged everyone to get involved in National Gardening Week this year, in whatever way they could. It's more important than ever that we savour the beauty of flowers and trees because gardens are a natural tonic.” Alan Titchmarsh
