QUOTE: A book is the only place in which you can examine a fragile thought without breaking it, or explore an explosive idea without fear it will go off in your face. It is one of the few havens remaining where a man's mind can get both provocation and privacy ~ Edward P. Morgan
FACT: Towards the end of 2011, official figures revealed that about 4.7 million adults in South Africa are illiterate and about 4.9 million adults are functional illiterate who left school before grade 7.
Today I'm celebrating the fact that I can read and write… I am truly blessed!
An added celebration:
~I joined Goodreads at the end of last year, and it's given my reading programme a massive shake-up!
~I read three stories this week, written by awesome blogger buddies… two were short prequels and the third was novella length… and posted short reviews on Goodreads…
~One of the above was my very first space opera story… a quick virtual toast to "reading outside the box"… *the sound of clinking glasses*
