This holiday season, with the generosity of our supporters and personal stories, we will remind the world why reading leads to a more peaceful, successful, creative and compassionate place.
What a good reminder! #WhyWeRead is simple: to walk in another's shoes, to live life beyond our day-to-day, to briefly escape our own particular problems, to inspire new ideas.#WhyWeRead
#Reading is one of life’s greatest pleasures.
Reading helps us empathise and understand the world around us. In 2017 we need it more than ever#WhyWeRead
The second is @worldreaders, an organization working to bring literacy and education to the world, and reminds us #WhyWeRead: education empowers us, fostering empathy for others, something our world sorely needs today#WhyWeRead
To ground myself in the mysteries of my faith, finding words that I didn't know could be mine, yet have already been articulated by someone else far more eloquently.#WhyWeRead
Thank goodness for #GivingTuesday. Please check out #WhyWeRead from @Worldreaders and give the gift of literacy and reading
I read to live and to thrive. A world without books is a world without a beginning. A lost world.#WhyWeRead
A reading world is a more peaceful and compassionate place. Share why you read and join our partners @worldreaders in reminding the world why reading matters. #WhyWeRead #GivingTuesday#WhyWeRead
"In my family, reading is like brushing teeth. Everyday, it's part of the daily routine. It's a way to keep ideas fresh, to dislodge crusty old assumptions that can rot our minds and eventually lead to terrible infections."
"Reading gave me an innovative business idea and helped me understand why different business ideas thrive in different parts of the world. I co-founded Readworm at Ashesi University to encourage more Ghanaian youth to read more often.
I read to expand my universe by accessing other people’s thoughts. Why do you read?
Because I need novels to help me imagine what might be rather than only see what is
I read because I believe learning is the gateway to a prosperous world. A learning society is a society awash with personal and communal opportunities and therefore less conflicts.
I read because it makes a way more positive impact in my life than taking selfies.
Our best hope for a future that embraces compassionate, rational discourse is a world of readers. Help us spread the power of reading.
