Peek Inside - March Book 1 (2 and 3)


When I was deciding to come back to the blog I was looking through all the blogging memes that the blogs I read follow. I had done Book Beginnings and The Friday 56 a handful of times, but over at Mixed Book Bag, JC merged them together and I really like that idea.  So borrowing from her I'm going to start linking up to both Book Beginnings on Friday from Rose City Reader and The Friday 56 with Freda's Voice.


This week the book March: Book 1 by John Lewis caught my eye.

It Begins: 
"Can you swim?"
"No."
"Well, neither can I -- but we might have to."

On Page 56:
Dr. King's message hit me like a bolt of lighting. He applied the principles of the church to what was happening now, today. It was called the social gospel -- and I felt like he was preaching directly to me. I went to the school library on Monday to find out everything I could about this man.


Verdict:
Must read!  No really stop what you're reading, if you can afford it go buy all 3 books if not hit up your local library and put it on hold. I'm assuming you'll have to put it on hold because all copies are checked out.  This story is so moving and by Book 3 you will need a box of tissues because it is SO moving and emotional.  All three books earned 5 stars in my book.
