As regards silent reading...

I read a lot of science fiction, and a lot of magazines, but am slowing up as my eyes get older!
No doubt that interested everyone!

Reading while moving my lips:

I read for Vision Australia, formerly The Association for the Blind. This is their headquarters, just across the road from the Kooyong tennis courts.

They host a radio station, 3RPH print radio, on 1179AM. Most of the people involved are volunteers - gathering items to read, reading, operating the panels, and presenting the programs.

Each reader usually does two shifts a month, at various times of 4 to 5 hours (not continual reading!) from 6.30 am to 10.30pm. I usually read on the first and third Wednesday nights of the month.

If you fancy yourself as a reader, and have spare time (and live locally!), give them a ring. They also have a demand for volunteers to visit blind people, drive them around, and so on. So if you can drag yourself away from this artificial environment occasionally, volunteer!
