About The Story Reading Ape

It does not matter if you blog once a week, once a day or several times a day but it does matter that it is consistent.

In my opinion it is down to the quality of the posts and also the expectation that readers will find something of interest.

Saturday, December 23rd, I began my Readathon at 7:00 a.m., and spent the first hour reading my “grandson’s” dissertation, “If You Do Not Like the Past, Change It”: The Reel Civil Rights Revolution, Historical Memory, and the Making of Utopian Pasts.
