So many books, so little time. So personally, I try to cram in as many novels in a year as I can. But apparently not too many other Americans think so because in the latest literacy ranking, the U.S comes in at #7.
Can you guess what the #1 literate country in the world is? Drum roll, please. . . it's Finland. No surprise, really, since that's the country that celebrates Jólabókaflóð.
Want to know the other top reading countries? Norway, Iceland, Denmark and Sweden. Hmm. And who said Vikings are barbarians?
I hear voices. Loud. Incessant. And very real. Which basically gives me
two options: choke back massive amounts of Prozac or write fiction. I chose the
latter. Way cheaper. I've been writing since I discovered blank wall space and
Crayolas. I seek to glorify God in all that I write...except for that graffiti
phase I went through as a teenager. Oops. Did I say that out loud?
