I've previouly mentioned that I joined Read SA, a new campaign encouraging South Africans to read, emphasising that it is hip to read, and to be well read. I volunteered to manage the online stuff for the campaign, including creating a Facebook page, and I have to say it's been a pleasure.
The campaign has lots of people who are committed to making it work, and they have spread the word far and wide, with the result that the FB fan page now has accumulated over 340 fans in a month.
Anyhoo, today READ SA made it into The Daily Dipatch, thanks to Stevie Godson. Check out the article. If you are a writer/publishing professional or just love books, you might also want to check out the READ SA Facebook page. The campaign is also on the BOOK SA site.
