While food feeds our bodies, books feed our minds. They feed our brains and imagination, helping us constantly grow and improve ourselves, books are a way we can rediscover our world whether that world be real or imaginary.
And speaking of feeding, guess who’s back?
You guessed it….Bobby is and he’s even more ravenous than ever.
He still loves to chow down a variety of different books and can often be spotted getting stuck into a book at your local library. Bobby’s love of books has helped his mind to grow, his personality to develop and his imagination run wild!
Be like Bobby!
Are you ready to be a bookworm? Then pick up a book and begin your own bookworm feast!
Between October 11th and November 11th we want you to chow down as many books as you can and help us raise as much as we can for people with MS.
And we’re going to have so much fun doing it. Just pick the books you want to read. You get to choose. Pick as many as you like. But it doesn’t matter if you read 20 books or just read one book. Because every book you devour will help people with MS.
Taking part is easy. Just tell your parent, guardian or teacher you want to join the MS Readathon. Then ask your family and your friends to sponsor you, and get reading!
We will send you out a sponsorship card but even easier you can create your own online fundraising page here.
But that’s not all. Because we have some really great reading rewards to give away –including 10 brand new iPads!

What are you waiting for? Om…nom…nom….nom…
Fancy yourself as a bit of a bi-lingual bookworm or a bookworm who’d like to challenge themselves a bit more by doing the MS Readathon in a language other than Irish or English?
We’ve teamed up with our friends at Languages Connect (you can learn more about them here) who have very kindly sponsored two extra iPads this year.
To be in with a chance to win one of these, simply raise €80 or more and read over half of your books in a foreign language. (Excludes English or Irish)
You can find suggested reading lists in lots of different languages here.
