I’m looking for books to add to my library queue. Read anything good lately? Chrysi, I need you to comment, too – I should’ve written down the titles of a bunch of those books we talked about a few months ago.
Anyway, you can catch up on my current have-already-read-this-year list here.
Ok, go – comment away! I need books and I need ’em now!
More than a little curious about favorite photographer Nicole Hill‘s new textbook…
I like to think that I read a lot of books. I’m not too biased in what I choose to read, but as I’ve become a bigger fan of the library, I’m more inclined to choose books that I might have passed over if I were only planning to purchase them.
Enter The Help. At first glance, it wasn’t a book that I probably would’ve just picked up. I tend to lean toward lighter fare and the subject matter of segregated 1960s Mississippi tends to not be, well, very light. When I checked it out at the library after a several-week waiting list, the librarian practically gushed about how amazing this was.
And she was right. I can’t put this book down. It brings me back to the same question, over and over again: how can/could people treat other people poorly? Why do we not talk about our differences? How does ignorance thrive?
Anyway. I’m definitely going to buy this book, because I know that it is one that I will want to read again and again. Add it to your queue, library-goers!
Richard Scarry’s books were some of my faves as a kid. I have fond memories of reading them with my dad and so now I delight in reading them with Jude. I caught a glimpse of this Scarry-inspired birthday party today and had to post about it, if anything, for my own archives for birthday party ideas. Too fun!
