For the Love of Books
MUSCAT, OMAN, September 19, 2018 – For many of us, our fondest childhood memories involve curling up in bed with our much-loved storybook or having our parents treat us to a fairy tale bedtime story. Time spent with friends would often have consisted of sharing tales about the adventures of our favourite fictional characters and we all remember getting dressed up as our literary heroes for World Book Day at school. While a passion for reading may be cultivated during our early years, it often continues and strengthens into adulthood where a good book can offer a few valuable minutes of escapism or enlightenment in an otherwise stressful day.
Part of the event were two indoor soccer and volleyball tournaments and an opening ceremony, in which the General Consul, Hamed Al-Hajri, of Oman in Australia and Vallery Farmer, the Honoured Consul of Oman in New Zealand, met and talked to Omani students.
