Best Books 2009
The Help was the best book I read this year. I read it early this summer. While reading it I knew it was the book to beat and over the rest of the year it stood the test of time. I love this book! If you have not read it; drop everything and go to the bookstore and get it. It is the story of several women in 1962 in Mississippi, namely white housewives and their African-American domestic workers.
