Pleasure in reading

Reading is always one of the best ways of relaxing, whether through fiction, immersing oneself in the imagination and imagery of authors; or in non-fiction, being challenged to expand horizons, learn new ideas and gain knowledge. Whatever your preference, reading is something that the Federation actively encourages.

At this year's Book Fair, we are so happy to present to you ten new and exciting titles. These include, the touching moments of professionals fighting the virus in Care Beyond Professionalism - Stories under COVID-19; how to deal with anxiety in Life is Beautiful; Mom's Training - A Gift of Life, interviews with 12 marvellous mothers of different backgrounds; and Turning Point V, which covers stories about youth who have a second change in life. We will also have, at our stall, the champion of the first School Young Writers' Competition funded by SCOLAR. This  Form 3 student shares with us her thoughts and feelings in Languages of Love

Come and visit us at 1B-A12, in the General Books Pavilion at the Hong Kong Book Fair from 15 July to 21 July 2020.

Read to escape. Read for knowledge. It doesn't matter: just read!
