Your blog just became a viral sensation. What’s the one post you’d like new readers to see and remember you by? Write that post.
My love of reading and books is not a secret. I hope to encourage the audience to continue to read and or volunteer teaching illiterates.
14% of the adult population in the US is illiterate
774 million people worldwide are illiterate.
With the new year upon us, resolutions considered, wouldn’t it be wonderful to change the bleak statistics and teach at least ONE person how to read? Imagine opening their world to beautiful and practical words, their self esteem rising, no longer feeling shame or the fear of ridicule.
For those literate, keep on reading, step it up and challenge yourself to a ‘difficult’ read, expand your genres, read an author or a narrative out of your usual spectrum. Pick up that one book you’ve had on your TBR forever and read it!! Grab the author your curiosity has been urging you to read or snag the book or genre that’s your ‘secret indulgence’. Maybe you want to test the waters of Non-fiction – by all means do it!!
Together let’s encourage reading period, let’s open the door to an amazing world waiting to be explored or continue our passion. Annihilating illiteracy is possible if we work together, we can do it.
