My mom left The Help at my house accidentally, so I picked it up. Four days later, I looked up from the book.

That is an exaggeration, but I really was riveted and I absolutely loved the book. The subject matter (black housekeepers in Jackson, MI in the 1960s) is heavy, but the writing is definitely not. It is entertaining, easy reading. It might make you cry a little bit though, and generally be astonished at the human race. However, you will probably laugh quite a bit too. I’m not a book reviewer, so I’ll just say this: go read it.

As part of my new goal to not watch Hulu on my laptop in bed anymore, I hope to start reading a lot more. I’m currently reading Twenties Girl.
