One thing I love to do at the cottage is read. I usually have a big pile of home decor magazines to get through by this time of the year, but I seem to have caught up on most of my magazine reading (unless I put a pile somewhere that I forgot about).
A few weeks ago, I saw a preview for a movie called The Help, based on the book by Kathryn Stockett.
The three main characters are amazing women who take a huge risk in order to tell the story of what life was like for “the help” in Jackson, Mississippi in the 1960s. The movie is coming out in August, but I decided not to wait for the movie and buy the book. I was hoping it would get me through a good part of the summer, but I love the book so much I pick it up every chance I get! It’s funny, sad, hopeful, and completely enthralling.
Have you read any good books lately?
