Inspiration

If you're not familiar with one of my very favorite blogs, the extremely cool "The Unbearable Banishment," I must now ask you, no implore you, to visit his most recent post:


If you love books, if you understand just how they can change your life, this post will move you as it moved me, and maybe just maybe you'll be a little choked up when you finish reading it...I know I was...

Too cool!

I wrote to an author recently. She didn't respond. That's OK, I still like her book. :)

Thanks for the directions, it is a truly wonderful post.

Tracey said...

I went, I read, I liked, I thank you.

The Week in Kids comes out tomorrow. You usually stop by for that, so I look forward to seeing you!

Pat said...

Thanks for the pointer.

I don't know if I'm ready to be choked up right about now. But I'll go!

As someone equally besotted with books, I was extremely moved by the post, by the effect TKAM had on him and by the charming letters he received from Harper Lee. It must be so gratifying for an author when a book so inspires a reader like that.

I followed your advice and visited the Blog. Your right, it is well worth following.

I followed your link, and I am so glad. Beauty, grace ... I'm all teary-eyed now. Such loveliness. Thank you.

Well since you ask then I will go. I love books but it seems like I spend so much time on the computer and my iPhone that I have not been reading my books like I should. I need to start reading a book when I take a bath, it is so relaxing. Thank you for this link.

God bless.

Mrsupole said...

Thank you for sending me there. It was worth it. Very cool.

Take care and God bless.

Time flies.
A very fine example for the worth of the written, and its permanency.

How are You?

I recently came across a list, 20 books every teenager should read by 16, and that book was on it. Thing is, I have only read about 5 off that list, and honestly, I can only remember 1 of them. The others, I just know I read them. I think I read them too young, too young to truly comprehend the subject matter (my mom was telling me about me reading Jane Austen at age nine...I thought it was older, but it sure explains why I thought they were hugely boring for so many years, lol), so none of it stuck.

My other issue is how physically affected I get by books...and the subject matter of TKAM is guaranteed to bring on palpitations, lightheadedness, and hyperventilation (not joking..I nearly passed out in a bookstore once, skimming through an upsetting passage in a book.) I can't handle racism, inequality and injustice. It's pathetic.

Reading that post, though, is making me think I should screw up the courage, and give it another go. Maybe.
