Hi! My name is Dina and I am a life-long learner. I stepped into a library and fell in love with reading immediately. Since then, stories have continuously marked memorable developments in my life. I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree and a Master’s in literature. I am not sick of reading yet. Stories are treasures in my life. I am here to share this passion with you. Expect a celebration of tales and reflections on themes, story-telling techniques, characterizations, and more.
I am a vegan hijab-wearing Muslim. My aim is to approach the world, its inhabitants, and the stories they tell with compassion and love. I challenge myself and my readers to both be understanding, curious, and kind to one another. My life, in terms of sequences and the stories I have read along the way, is a testament to the surprises a person can carry. In the end, remember the words of Walt Whitman in his Leaves of Grass: “Do I contradict myself? Very well, then I contradict myself, I am large, I contain multitudes.”
Be kind. Be curious. Be your quirky self. These are age-old lessons in the bones of this little site and the lady who runs it. Welcome.
