Fight! By Humble the Poet

This is your life, fight for it.

The book is a wonderful read so far. I am reading the truths that I think I need to hear from the variety of topics that are covered in 101 Simple Truths for a Better Life by Humble the Poet. Each of them is short, sweet, and impactful. Often, this genre does not enlighten us to profound truths that were the missing puzzle pieces preventing our lives from being more awesome They are really just some ideas that we know but forget and we need to be reminded of them again. Truth #72 Fight! was too good not to share:

Book – The Ghost in the Tokaido Inn

I had never heard of this book before but it came to me as a prize for a drawing contest at the local library when I was a kid. I took notice of it many years later in my grand library of two shelves. Since then, I have read it several times and thoroughly enjoyed it. One is never too old for a children’s larger-than-life adventure. Continue reading “Book – The Ghost in the Tokaido Inn”

How to Read Non-Fiction

The book to read is not the one that thinks for you but the one that makes you think. – Harper Lee

I have always been a story reader and my interest in non-fiction is fairly premature. I am developing it, in favour of my ardent pursuit of knowledge. I find that it is much more challenging than reading fiction and offers a vastly different experience. Continue reading “How to Read Non-Fiction”
