Bout of Books Read-a-thon 13: Day 4 Totals

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, May 11th and runs through Sunday, May 17th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 13 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team.


I made some decent progress today (day 4) and I was able to finish one of the books I was reading. 

Today's challenge is brought to us by Ranty Runt of a Reader and asks participants to share one book that you believe will be considered a classic in 100 years.
Here is my response:

Title: The Help
Author: Kathryn Stockett
  1. Set during the civil rights movement of the 1960's, this book tells of a turbulent time in America's history. In only 5 decades society has come so far in terms of race acceptance, imagine where it will be in 100 years.
  2. It is a timeless story of friendship, love and right and wrong.

  1. Yep, I'm with you in thinking that The Help will be considered a classic in 100 years time. Thanks for sharing your pick, and I hope you enjoy the rest of the readathon. :)

    1. Its the first book that came to mind when I saw your challenge. Thank you for stopping by.

  2. The Help is one of my favourite books. I really hope it is considered a classic in 100 years time. I believe it has everything needed to be a classic - it talks about the civil rights movement (it mentions Medgar Evers), it describes the life of the black women who were called the help (how much they loved the white children they raised; the white children who grew up only to think less of them) and even mentions Sugar Ditch.

    Happy readings! Good luck for the rest of the read-a-thon. :)

    1. It really is an important book. There is so much history to the story and a lot people can learn from. Thank you Thannya.

  3. You're doing great so far! I've completed two books too :)

    1. Thank you Kelsey! Way to go. All the best to you with the rest of the read-a-thon.
