Let's end this workweek on a high note!
TikTok is a popular target of criticism, for a variety of reasons.
But like most other forms of technology, it can be used for good, too.
NPR's Morning Edition introduced many of us to TikTok star Oliver James, who's publicly pursuing a bookish goal.
James, who told Leila Fadel that his school system failed to help him with his reading disability, was inspired to finally learn how to read by his children.
He posted online about adding reading to his workout journey, and that's when the BookTook community found him.
Now, he's set a goal of reading a hundred books this year and is sharing his learning process online.
Listen to James talk about learning to read on TikTok (or read from his conversation with Fadel) on NPR's website.
