Discussing The Giver’s Relevance in GIFs
South African schools don’t really study The Giver by Lois Lowry as prescribed reading, so I finally read it last weekend. I had been putting it off for years but it is such a quick and easy read that I could read it in an afternoon. Guys, I had so many thoughts about it afterwards.

It’s great that non-readers get to enjoy these stories too, but often they don’t get the deeperContinue reading “TTT: Books to Movies”
