Reading is a Revolution

From Aaron Paquette (the founding citizen of #Ottawapiskat)

Share this! (if you think literacy is important) 🙂

Let’s make this the start of something incredible. Join me in a revolution.

What do you get out of it?

The world, chico. And everything in it. This is a commitment that will change your life for the better, forever.

Here’s how it works:
Read one book a week. Without fail.
To understand a thing, read five diverse books on the topic.
Read every day.
Read to your children.
Read to your friends.
Read to your elders.
Share what you’ve read.
Write about it.
And write your own book.
Join the #ReadingRevolution
Education is what gives you ideas. Ideas are what transform the world.
So what do you say? Will you make the commitment?
