Read Any Good Books Lately?

September 8 is International Literacy Day designated by UNESCO in 1965.

The objective is to emphasize the importance of literacy to individuals, communities, and societies. There are nearly 800 million adults around the world do not know how to read, and 2/3 of those are women. More than 100 million children have no access to education. How tragic.

Today a reader, tomorrow a leader.
Margaret Fuller

To learn to read is to light a fire; every syllable that is spelled out is a spark.
Victor Hugo

A home without books is a body without soul.
Marcus Cicero

Reading is a discount ticket to everywhere.
Mary Schmich

Support Literacy. It is important for all of us.
