I’ve got a friend who always has a good book in her bag – no moment is wasted when you’re waiting and you’ve got something fun to read. The Read While Waiting project comes out of the Random Alphabets group in Malaysia. This Saturday they are hoping to start a world wide movement – encouraging people to read while they wait – for a bus, a coffee even. Paul Reynolds, commentator extraordinaire, has blogged about this project. Word is that Cathedral Square at 3pm could be the place for Christchurch people to join in.
On Saturday you might also want to drop into the Central Library for Digital Day 10:00am-4:00pm.As part of Library Week 2008, come along to find out how to get the most from our free digital library:

And if you are of a crafty frame of mind, pop down to Craft 2.0 at Our City O-Tautahi. It’s an indie craft fair featuring the best and brightest of the New Zealand craft scene.
