Rare for me!

As an avid reader of my youth, I find it somewhat sad that I rarely get to read now.  I blame my inability to schedule my free time properly to this fact!  While on vacation for two weeks, I happened to pick up a book in an information center at Parker's Crossing in Tennessee.  Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl (Dover Thrift Editions).  It was published in 1861.  Since I had the opportunity to see "Roots" and movies like "The color Purple", I knew that the life of a slave wasn't easy BUT I had NO idea that it was as bad as it was described in her book.  If you get a chance, read it.  ;-)
