Homonyms: Five Tips to Help you use the Write Word

Stuck in a Reading Rut?

When you’re a bookworm, everyone just assumes that you’re reading all the time; that you read whatever you can get your hands on. In my experience, this isn’t the case. There have been stretches of time in my life where I would like to read but I can’t finish a book. I buy lots of books with the intention of…

A New Way to Read

If you’re like me you’ve got lots going on in your day and try to squeeze your reading in where you can.
