About Big Reads:
Reading is a solitary act, and should be cherished as such. But – it is also a way to connect with people from all over the world, and even across time (I consider Tolstoy and I to be to great friends.) Big Reads is a space to share what sparks my curiosity, inspiration, interest. A place to meet my literary needs, and perhaps some of yours. A place for something to read that will inspire or entertain you, for the duration of a cup of tea.
