Look around my home and you will find books everywhere. Arts and travel to inspire my bucket list. Biographies full of life triumphs. Development and leadership that found me when I needed them most. By my bedside are children classics, poetry and light reads to escape the everyday.
My collection has evolved to explore social, economic and environmental systems I have taken for granted. Reading different perspectives and points of view, to understand how we got where we are today, and how to move forward in a positive, inclusive, healthy way.
For me reading is like breathing. With each page I inhale someone's story. Holding my breath it churns inside me. Exhale and I share with the world, my interpretation through action and words.
That is why I am thrilled we are partnering with Better World Books. So much more than an on-line bookstore, Better World Books is a Certified B Corp founded on socially conscious principles. Committed to fund literacy worldwide they have raised over $28 million dollars for literacy and libraries. Saving the planet by keeping over 320 million books from landfills. Buy a book and they donate a book to someone in need with over 26 million donations so far.
