What inspired you to work with Book Cottage?

I was inspired to establish Book Cottage because I strongly believe in the bewitchment of books in changing behaviors, especially in childhood, to be kinder humans.

One book you suggest that everyone should read?

Suggesting only one book is so difficult! ... I think my suggestion would be Blindness by José Saramago. In this book, Saramago puts readers' imagination to work and takes us through a journey of Human Nature, where human being’s best and worst are shown with masterful writing.

 A book character that you would like to be friends with?

One of the book characters that I would love to be friends with is Anne Shirley from the Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery. Anne’s personality is so rich and her positive attitude towards the world is absolutely contagious!

 A quote from a book that you have underlined?

“The soul of our politics is the commitment to ending domination.”
