Brilliant article by Mirela Roncevic about her nationwide free reading zone in Croatia.

Mirela Roncevic

This is my last article in the "Lessons from Croatia Reads" series. I need to get my life back now...

"My hope is that what we accomplished in Croatia will insp...ire others to initiate similar projects in their communities and countries, wherever they may be. Our team planted seeds in Croatia we hope to see grow all over the world. It was never about Croatia, as special as the project has become to me personally. It was and remains about free access to books for all mankind [you may say I'm a dreamer but...]..."

After a recent flight reminded me of how terrible it is to travel with my circa-2011 laptop, I took the plunge and bought myself a basic tablet. As tablets go, it’s not particularly powerful, but it doesn’t weigh upwards of 10 pounds, and the battery doesn’t fall out when I move it, so it’s a clear…
Instead of 16 recommendations for what a writer of fiction should do, Borges playfully provided a list of 16 prohibitions.
There is a huge misconception about reading that is present in our modern society. Reading is just as important if not more important than more publicized ha...

Pokemon Go has had any number of positive side effects since it was introduced, including exposing couch-dwellers to sunlight and fresh air, and encouraging strangers to interact at Gyms and Pokestops. It's been called a boon to businesses and any where else that players congregate, but one public l...

Andrei Tarkovsky, who, even under his own set of less-than-ideal conditions, managed to make movies like Solaris, The Mirror, and Stalker. (Watch them free online here.) 'If they existed, his work wouldn't exist, for the artist doesn't live in a vacuum. Some sort of pressure must exist.

Although some people claim that they can read anywhere, anytime, we all know that a comfortable, well lit, soft spot is ideal. On a blanket in a park is one such perfect spot; on dry, spongy moss, under a tree, is another good location. But what happens if you're a city dweller (or not even!), and o...

  • Random acts of Islamic terrorism have now captured the world’s atten...tion. “The Killing Rituals”, Amazon’s # 1 bestselling political thriller authored by a former Israeli Secret Service agent, will take you to where it all started. Back in the 80’s, interracial romance was perceived as science fiction, international terrorism was a prelude to Al-Kaeada and ISIS, setting the stage for what has become the 21ST Century’s violent nightmare; and the two Superpowers were still engaged in the Cold War Tango. Based on true events this authentic political thriller provides you with a realistic rendition of the people and strategies deployed to combat global terrorism - and the politics that drive both. A Palestinian nationalist fighting for his cause. A female African American CIA Agent who falls for her Israeli MOSSAD partner. An ex-KGB Officer pulling strings behind a Middle Eastern terrorist organization. A Scottish Coast Guard Captain manipulated by a bunch of seemingly-amateur sea-faring women he saves from a storm. And an FBI Agent duped by the defector he’s assigned to guard. These are but some of the characters you’ll get to know when you read “The Killing Rituals”, The season’s bestselling surprise hit. Written by a former Israeli Secret Service agent, this suspenseful political thriller rocks you from one corner of the world to another while painting a realistic canvas of the war between Western democracies and the complex web of international terrorism. Dear friends, “The Killing Rituals” reached # 1 Amazon Best Seller status in the “Espionage Thrillers” category – as well as # 1 in the “Mystery, Thrillers & Suspense” and the “Action & Adventure” categories! It is available in Paperback and Kindle editions. See More
