  • Hello Dear! It's a great topic.Thanks for sharing these infos. I think Big Read was a good advert of reading.And in my opinion it's a shame that nowadays children (and adults as well) just sit in front of the TV instead of reading a book. I hope there will be some changes in the near future. Great job! Thank you again!<br /><br/>

  • This is a very good topic, and your presentation too: Now I know more about this project, its aims and results. I liked the colorful charts the most.

  • Hello, Aliz -- I have commented your show already, but it seems Slideshare's lost it. Well, here we go again: I am an exception: I've never read the novel by Gardonyi in full, and I don't think I will. I love the movie, though. Seen it at least five times. But the novel? It's not too hot for me, and I doubt whether everyone that voted for it in the Big Read campaign had read it in full. In any event -- the Big Read bit was sure a worthwhile effort -- and who knows? Maybe its effects in making people interested in reading will be long lasting.<br /><br/>
