Roots - Final Post
I enjoyed reading Roots even more than I initially thought I would, and I feel proud to have persevered through its 688 small-print pages, especially during the beautiful days of summer. Never will I forget Kunta Kinte and his descendants, and I'm grateful to Alex Haley for putting this generational story into written form.
If you're a dedicated reader and you haven't yet tried it, I commend this book to you as a powerful artifact of U.S. history.
Finally, I want to thank Laura at Booksnob for hosting this read-along. I certainly would not have done it without her.
