Reading is Golden

A Platform Supporting Authors and Readers 

Reading is Golden was established to support the importance of literacy.

Through their persistent efforts, Reading Is Golden introduces new and experienced authors through weekly Author Spotlights.

These spotlights also include Q&A sessions where readers are encouraged to actively participate and give feedback. Literacy amongst young children has become the focal point of their business.

Reading Is Golden also hosts monthly book giveaways, along with encouraging children and their families to submit book reviews. There is a very promising future for Reading Is Golden.

Through the support of others, they can reach more authors and readers while continuing to spread the importance of literacy around the world.
