Founded in 2016 by Amalia Cole, Mali Reads is a platform for sharing inspiration and knowledge through book recommendations.
Mali Reads' focus is on the way in which our opinions differ and our ability to learn new points of view from one and another. Placing a high value on tolerance, acceptance and importantly the drive for knowledge, we strongly believe that to gain the best world view, we must develop an understanding of as many different sides of the story as possible. One of the best ways to form this is by reading.
We believe we learn better when we are engaged, and when learning feels like an adventure rather than a chore. This is why the base function Mali Reads allows readers to easily search for a book based on how they feel at the time. Not being restricted to recommendations from just what we have read, the website also allows for people to also share their own recommendations in a structured, community space.
Mali Reads runs in an online magazine format, with various features to enrich your reading and learning experience. These include our conversations with people from relevant fields who inspire, as well as articles prompted by books that we have read, discussing how we can apply the knowledge and ethics they have shared into to our everyday lives. With clean and simple navigation, we have been sure to make the website pleasing to the eye...which always helps.
We hope you read plenty of variety, expose yourself to something you are unfamiliar with, allow yourself to be critical, discuss your findings with others and most importantly, enjoy the journey!
