Book Review - The Help...

 

Hey y'all,

I just wanted to pop in and share a card I made for my Dad's Birthday. He is truly a special person to me. My dad absolutely loves to watch television. I think that is where I get it from. Growing up we use to watch the show Dallas together. That is the first show I could remember watching as a kid. I just loved it. Anyway, I thought the theme of this card was perfect for him. LOL!


I recently shared a book review with you that I had read. I thought I would keep them coming, as long as you don't mind. I just love to read and since I go through so many books, I thought I would share some with you that I found interesting. The Help is a book I picked up recently because it has been on the NY Times Best Sellers List for weeks. It was a great book. It takes place in Mississippi in the 1960's. It deals with a few women who bonded together in order to overcome segregation and other obstacles. I just found it so touching. I have posted a link here. Let me know if you have or are reading it. I would love to know your thoughts.


Thanks for stopping by,
Brandi

Such a fun card!!

I picked up The Help at Costco the other day. Will read it once I finish my current book, Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami. This one is pretty good so far.
