Diverse Reads


Every time you open a book – there is a diversity in your perspective and experience as compared to the author. But this is more than that – I want to read titles that teach me something about an experience that is different to mine – differences in religion, folktales, society, friendships, love, relationships and even perspectives of how the author views the world from their own chair in the room.  Experiencing the world through travel is one of the best learning experiences ever – and books allow you to travel into another world and see, learn and experience that world in ways that you couldn’t have imagined at first.  So in an attempt to highlight books that will do this – I’m going to track out “Diverse Reads” here – this can be books from different religious perspectives, race, daily life in other countries, even to exploring disabilities, sexual preferences and assimilation struggles.
