For International Literacy Day

Read, educate, and smile

Let’s promote reading on International Literacy Day and every other day of the year. Photo via Pexels, CC0.

September 8th is International Literacy Day! Clanmother kindly reminded us about it last week and explained that this year’s theme is Literacy in a Digital World. As an avid reader and learner, as well as someone who recognizes the importance of literacy in furthering the development of nations, this global initiative is one that I wholeheartedly support. Why not read a favorite poem or story to a friend today? Or share a beloved book?

Maybe you’ll even attend a used book sale like ksbeth recently did. Here’s a creative poem on her “I didn’t have my glasses on…” blog that seems perfect to share today. The link below takes you to her poem titled Bookstock. Enjoy your word-happy day~ β™₯ Christy

  1. Yay!!! I’m actually reading a book to someone. It’s a lot of fun, and a wonderful way to get closer to someone in a non-digital , old fashioned way. Love it!

  3. The day I could read, was the day I understood, even at that young of age, there was power in words. Now, I recognize that words allow us to connect to a past we will never know and send a message to a future that we will never see. We are only a fragment of humanity’s narrative Let us live our moments in celebration of all! Celebrating with you, my dear friend.
