This platform is created with intent and for the general purpose of sharing .. for free. I find real pleasure in sharing anything that is GOOD and I read the reason we share is “because we care” .. they said. I am interested to learn more about legendary writers of the world + the life of a writer (of course) through reading and my favorite to unfold is the work of Zora Neale Hurston, at the moment.
The uncomfortable advantage is having plenty of free time and limited preferences in personal reading at the age of 34. Last summer, I noticed my list of preferred authors would best fit extending and engaging young learners. Their Eyes Were Watching God reignited my flames for D.E.A.R time** and text - to - text, self, and world connections just the same. My passion for reading (as a scholar and worker) has been consistent and now my focus for reading is more controlled. My goal this year is to read at least 10 books for pleasure or further knowledge \\ other than magazines. In addition to becoming a better reader I have set a tone for all reading AND future discoveries - catch my drift
