“The greatest gift is a passion for reading. It is cheap, it consoles, it distracts, it excites, it gives you knowledge of the world and experience of a wide kind. It is a moral illumination.” ~ Elizabeth Hardwick
It’s 5 : 26 PM on day 726 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, drink milk by myself, publish my Disability of the Day feature, listen to music, feed myself bread and baked beans for breakfast, hang out with my sister and her friend and feed myself rice and curry for lunch
This week is National Book Week in South Africa and in honour of that I’m sharing with you two of my favourite books and why I love them (you can see which other books I’ve read over the years at My Book Shelf). Take a look:
Before I read this book I would interact with people’s labels and not with people as human beings but now when I interact with people I do so knowing that I am neither superior nor inferior to them because at the end of the day we are all human beings so it would be fair to say this book changed my life.
I LOVE hearing from you feel free to leave a comment below.
