It’s Your World: Read About It!

Beat the “brave new world” on your own terms, by reading much and reading widely. Buy new, if you can. If you can’t buy new, buy used. If you can’t buy at all, ask your public library to buy the book you want, and then borrow it. Fiction or non-fiction, patronize the providers of written words, and if they’re Indie Author-Publishers, so much the better!

A FREE Educational Opportunity!

Join hundreds of other students worldwide in the study of Irish Language and Culture, at the MOOC provider FutureLearn:

Both courses begin on 26 March!

Now you can learn how to read the Irish dialogue that’s in Irish Firebrands (without having to rely on my in-text translations!)

Do You MOOC?

cowsFree, online, university-sponsored continuing education has been around for many years, but there hasn’t been much to attract me to the offerings. Then, suddenly, BOOM! Like buses, along come a bunch, all at one time, that are headed to places I need to go to research my work-in-progress, so lately I’ve been attending MOOCs at Coursera and FutureLearn. Check ’em out. They may be offering something you can use, too. (Click on logos to visit sites.)
