Does anyone remember Why Don’t You?
A BBC series that ran from 1973 to 1995. Their catchphrase was “Just Switch Off Your Television Set and Go and Do Something Less Boring Instead”.
Which was a little ironic given that it was itself a television show! However, the sentiment was well-intentioned and gave us children a nudge to change out of our pjs and play.
This Friday why not switch off your tv and do something else?
It’s World Book Night – the perfect excuse to immerse yourself in literature.
Here are 5 ways to celebrate…
1 Read an exciting new novel
Buy from your local bookshop or borrow from your library. Open again now – yay!
2 Listen to an audiobook
Did you know that you can loan audiobooks from your local library? (They loan e-books too.) Find your library online services via your local council website.
3 Gain culinary inspiration
Gather together all your cookery books and make a list of new recipes to try. We have plenty of new cookbooks to choose from here.
4 Broaden your mind – browse non-fiction
This may be an appreciation of beautiful artwork, marvelling at the wonders of the universe, discovering historical facts, or planning new planting for your garden. Whatever your book collection may be – enjoy it.
5 Create your own book
Put together a collection of your own musings and sketches, your favourite recipes, or make a photo book online featuring some of your favourite pics.
