Think About This Tuesday

Welcome to Think About This Tuesday! 
Some of the questions will be simple, some will require a little more thought.

It's no secret that I love reading.  I'll give just about anything a try.  Usually within the first chapter I know whether or not I want to finish reading that book.  The books I have range from Tom Brokaw to Buddhism to Stephen King.  Of all the books I've ever read one has always stood alone.

"A Time to Kill" by John Grisham
I read this book BEFORE I watched the movie.  Books are always, ALWAYS, better than the movies.  I remember feeling what Carl Lee felt.  I was angry.  I agreed with him when he said, "Yes, they deserved to die!  And I hope they burn in hell!"  I immediately thought that schools should require this book be read in American History classes.  Of course, this will never happen because the book is about race, rape, and murder.  It's insane to think that while these things really happened, some people still try to sweep it under a rug.  While I think that you should always read the book before seeing the movie, I will admit that the movie adaptation was nearly spot on.  The cast of characters was exactly how I imagined them in my mind.  The book is several years old, but if you've got the chance, give it read.

This week's question is....
"What's your favorite book?  Why?" 

Write a post telling what your favorite book is and why you feel that way.  Place a link to that specific post in Mr. Linky.  Remember to visit other blogs and leave comments!  And don't forget to comment my post too!!

  2. "A Time To Kill" is without a doubt in my top 10, probably my top 5. I've read it at least three times and it never gets old.

  3. I'm sorry I didn't comment sooner. The problem is, I can't decide on just one book, but your post did what you intended, which is it got me thinking about it. BTW, I have a copy of "To Kill a Mockingbird" if you want to use it. Just come and get it anytime. See how I worked in a visit from you in there? I miss you.
