“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, said Jojen. The man who never reads lives only one.” ― George R.R. Martin,

“Once you learn to read, you will be forever free.” –Frederick Douglas

Megan is a very good friend of ours. They regularly donor quality books and they have some second-hand jewels for sale at their office in Colombo Street, the one with the cool mural. Today, we are asking her some questions about book clubs, recommendations and what to do when you do not like the book you are reading.
“A book lying idle on a shelf is wasted ammunition. Like money, books must be kept in constant circulation… A book is not only a friend, it makes friends for you. When you have possessed a book with mind and spirit, you are enriched. But when you pass it on you are enriched threefold.” ― Henry Miller,
“Some books leave us free and some books make us free.” –Ralph Waldo Emerson
Michele is the author of The Strange Sagas of Sabrina Summers. She donated two copies of Saga 1 to our project, one book in a standard edition and the other one in Dyslexia-friendly version. And this caught our attention. We decided then, to talk to her about her work.
