“Beware! Reading can seriously damage your ignorance.” I’ve no idea who said those words. But I agree. So, I read as much as I can. If I can’t completely kill ignorance, I plan to keep it maimed and twitching and screaming for mercy.
I just finished my self-imposed Goodreads reading challenge for 2016. I didn’t add specific titles to that list… I just danced through my to-be-read mountain. This year, I have added
9 books—fiction and nonfiction. And, as usual, I’m reading/rereading a handful of books written in Spanish.
At the end of this post, there is an empty list. I would like to fill it with the title of a book read by you. Not just any book, I want to read one of your favorites. Would you please leave the title of one of your favorite books in the comments? I will throw all the titles in Random.org and read the winner.
One more thing, I’ll write a poem review for each of the books on the diversity list.
