"Booked" for the National Holiday?

24 September 2014

The National Day holiday is coming up and it is a long one! Whether you are staying close to Shanghai or travelling afar, this is a perfect time to read about the place where you will be – its history, things to do there, or just a fun story about it.

Or perhaps you would like to ‘escape’ to somewhere other than where you are.  Whatever your plan, a book will be a terrific companion on a long flight, while lazing in the sun, lounging on your sofa, or trying to decide the next day’s adventure.

There is still time to visit The Learning Centre and pick up a book that will be a great buddy whatever you are doing. Perhaps it will be…

….a travel guide?  Australia, Austria, China, India, Nepal, Japan, Laos & Cambodia, Malaysia & Singapore, Vietnam & Angkor Wat and more…
