Happy International Literacy Day!

There’s nothing like being a person who heavily relies on her ability to read and easily comprehend challenging herself by going places where she is functionally illiterate. I’ve done it twice so far. Although, I can technically still read French.

Every American should do it at least once, without demanding or expecting that people speak English or have English available for them.

I thank my mother for getting me a library card at age 4 and taking me to the library all the time. Think I’ll jump offline and actually read the old school way — with a hardcover book today.
