Welcome to Words On Us, a place for book lovers and home scholars of every sort. This site is dedicated to noble and timeless ideas: that making people laugh can be the first step toward making them think, that great writing is among the greatest pleasures on earth, that learning is a lifelong process not to be defined by the calendar or confined to the schoolroom, that a truly great batch of brownies can change the world. Come on in and take a look around.
