Our desire for human connections runs deep, and in a book I recently read and reviewed HERE, this yen sometimes leads people to do unusual things.
This Must Be the Place, by Kate Racculia, reminds me of one of those quirky stories by Anne Tyler.
Reading is one of my favorite conduits to connecting, since once I open that book and engage with the characters, I am hooked. Sometimes more than other times, of course, but the best indicator of a good book is how it reels the reader in, until he/she is right there on the scene with the action.
Books that stand the test of time are best illustrated by some of our classics; one of those is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year! To Kill a Mockingbird, Harper Lee’s only published novel, is one such book.
This week, a biography called Mockingbird is on my list of reads.
Once I’ve read this book, I’m definitely going to grab a copy of TKAM, which I’m kind of embarrassed to say I haven’t read (watching the movie doesn’t count, does it?).
What special books have you read that help you connect? What elements of your favorite writer’s style are sure to reel you in?
