Peek Inside a Book: Born a Crime


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 I'm reading Born a Crime by Trevor Noah and thought it would make a good pick for these prompts.

Born a Crime
Chapter 1 Begins: 
Sometimes in big Hollywood movies they'll have these crazy chase scenes where somebody jumps or gets thrown from a moving car. 

On Page 56:
That, and so many other smaller incidents in my life, made me realize that language, even more than color, defines who you are to people. 

Verdict:
While I'm enjoying reading this book, I'm considering giving up on the book and switching to the audio book.
