Welcome to my blog! I love to read — and I love to recommend good books to my students — and others. I’ll be sharing excerpts of my reviews here as well as my thoughts on the world of reading.
Worthy2Read is based on Philippians 4:8 “Whatver is worthy . . . think about these things.” I will focus on works that are worthy of praise, worthy to spend that precious commodity: our time — to read.
Thanks for joining me.
