Psst…come closer and I’ll tell you a secret. *waiting…waiting…* Okay, come on, stop taking so long to get here. Oh, you’re here. Sorry. As I was saying, I’ve got a secret. Here goes – I puffy heart L-O-V-E reading. I mean really ❤ it. I have since I was a child.
To know me is to know that I’m a happy introvert who loves to tuck away in a corner and read.
In honor of International Literacy Day, which gives children and communities a chance to rediscover the joys of reading while raising awareness for those without access to education, here’s a collection of my favorite reading memes.
And a tiny collection of my favorite books.
The MOST important book I will ever read. It goes so far beyond ink on paper (or words on a screen, I read it on my phone). It guides my life.
The book that gave me the courage to admit that I wanted to be a writer.
Ironically, the book that encouraged me to see something special in my dark skin and what I thought of as my plain brown eyes.
The books that shaped my career’s passion to bring opportunity where there is none.
