Monday Musings: On Having and Not Having

Two people I know have new books out, and their books share a common theme, so they had a joint book launch. These were my thoughts:

We have so much in the developed world - things that we take for granted every day. Like the ability to speak our minds without persecution, or the ability to go to school and learn to read. The creators of these books are trying to do good things with them. Let's help them out.

Go to this video in YouTube, and click on "Show More" in the description. Then click on the link to Another Story Bookshop's website to order these books. PEN Canada will get some money to help persecuted writers; Because I Am A Girl will get some money so that Ugandan girls can go to school; a wonderful independent bookstore will get some more business; and you'll get two fantastic books. Everybody wins!

Have an awesome Monday.
