Reading for the Weekend (November 8)

It’s all about Twelve Years a Slave since I am only a quarter of the way through this harrowing book. Here’s a quote that just haunts me:

“The happy birds–I envied them. I wished for wings like them, that I might cleave the air to where my birdlings waited vainly for their father’s coming, in the cooler region of the North.”

I really am trying to finish the book before the movie outing this Saturday. Wish me luck!

After that, on Sunday, I’ll switch to a little lighter fare with Wait For You.
