Good Reading

I have finished Don't Blink and in usual Patterson style, you are just stumped to the end and flabbergasted too.  I liked it, and I'll review it soon.

The Help

Right now I'm reading a simply fantastic book for my book club, The Help by Kathryn Stockett.  This book is just amazing.  It's about black maids and their white bosses in the 60's.  I have so much to say about it.  I still have a hard time grasping that there was a culture of people who actually believed that black people were less than human.  It's quite disgusting.  They didn't want the maids to use their bathrooms for fear of disease, yet they wanted them to raise their kids and cook their food.  Oh I'd cook their food for em all right!!

They are also going to make this into a movie and I'm sure it will be just as good.  This is Stockett's debut novel and what a hit!

I have decided to forgo the 500 page challenge I've been doing and just focus on reading regardless if it's 10 pages or a thousand. I have a ton of books to get through!


  1. Great review Paula, I am starting to really get interested in reading this, even though it is not my usual read, it is more my movie taste other than thrillers of course.

  2. It was really really good Marce!! I loved it, just a great read.

    I'm going to post the reminder for the book club, how about Thursday for the discussion on your blog?


Please take a minute to leave a comment. Good or bad I always read them : ) and respond.
