The Help

I was invited to read The Help by Kathryn Stockett for a book club. Yay! A book club! How fun! I ran out and bought the book the next day. While reading over some of the comments people had written for the book club on Facebook, someone questioned if everyone else was reading the book in a southern accent. This made me even more curious.

I cracked open the book and the first paragraph read, "Mae Mobley was born on a early Sunday morning in August 1960. A church baby we like to call it. Taking care a white babies, that's what I do, along with all the cooking and the cleaning. I done raised seventeen kids in my lifetime. I know how to get them babies to sleep, stop crying, and go in the toilet bowl before they mamas even get out a bed in the morning." See, didn't you read that in a southern accent?

The Help chrocles the lifeof Aibileen, a black maid in 1962 in Jackson, Mississippi. She and her friend, Minny, who is a maid with a quick toungue join together to work on a project, to write a tell-all book about what it's really like to work as a black maid in the white homes of the south.

Yesterday, while reading the new Southern Living Magazine, there was an article on Kathryn Stockett. Very funny lady! I really like her!!!

I can't wait to dive into this book further. This is definitely going to be a pleasure read and is bound to be hilarious!

Cheap Newport Cigarettes are one of the most famous brands of cigarette. Marlboro is evolved from its London factory on the Marlborough Street after which it is named. Largest manufacturing plants of Marlboro are Virginia and Richmond now. Newport Cigarettes come with filters but at that time the filtered cigarettes were considered as less harmful and so preferred by women mostly and the unfiltered cigarettes were for men and were known as men cigarette.
