July Books! Uncle Tom's Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe
I picked this book up for two reasons: one, it is a great, historical novel and a book that I have heard about a lot, but have never read and two, because it is one of the books in the Easton Press 100 greatest books ever written. I am collecting these gorgeous books and this one is one of 19 that I own, as of now. I don't want these books just for show, I want to read them and learn from them.
As with all books written long ago, it took me a while to get used to the writing style, but it wasn't too difficult. The book is an piece of our country's' history and I'm glad I read it. The character's stories were interesting and tragic, all told with an aim to expose the true horror that was slavery.
