A Reading Journey toward #wellreadbhutan

Inspired by the boundless wisdom of His Majesty the King to read at least 10 pages a day, VTOB, led by a passionate teacher, Sonam Norbu, initiated the 10 Pages a Day Reading Journey on June 7, 2020, in partnership with Drukyul Literature Festival: Bhutan Echoes. The primary objective of the initiative is to inspire a #wellreadBhutan. 

The initiative is a long term project to inspire, motivate and consistently develop a strong reading culture in Bhutan. The participants are invited to sign up for a commitment to read at least 10 pages in a day. Prizes and different motivation mediums are put in place to encourage consistency and recognition. 

Those readers who are passionate about Bhutanese literature are invited to write reviews of the Bhutanese books they have read, and share them on BOOKNESE. The prizes for the best reviews in this category will be given by BOOKNESE. It will be a set of Bhutanese books.

Audience with Her Majesty

The grand annual prize is an audience with the Chief Patron of Drukyul Literature Festival, Her Majesty the Queen Mother of Bhutan, Ashi Dorji Wangmo Wangchuck, which will be given to a selected few avid readers.
