The man who doesn’t read good books has no advantage over the man who can’t read them. – Mark Twain
It’s 9: 51 PM on day 205 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself Uppumavu – an Indian dish made of rava. The name is an amalgam of two words : “salt” and “flour – and bananas for breakfast, semi-undress myself – I was so happy when I got my left-hand out of the sleeve of my shirt and I know I could’ve taken my whole shirt off had my mother not barged into bathroom and insisted on doing it for me I’ve got to make her understand that even although I don’t need her help as much as I used to I would always need her – tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign for a few hours – no luck – feed myself rice and curry for lunch, watch TV, feed myself Chapati – an unleavened flatbread – and baked beans for dinner and continue reading Engaging The Enemy by Nora Roberts – I started reading it on vacation and I have to say reading a 2-in-1 book isn’t as weird as I thought it would be 🙂
Today lying on my bed with a book in hand it occurred to me that reading gives birth to empathy with that said I would like to invite you to participate in my 38-Week Reading Challenge all you have to do is read one book for every week that is left in 2011. Are you an illiterate who can read?
