    Favorite Book: "Native Son" by Richard Wright

    "I found reading to be very difficult until I read the book "Native Son". It was a book that keep my attention throughout. I could not put it down because of the extraordinary character named Bigger Thomas. He was a guy like many of us today--he was simply trying to find his way in life. He was a character who wanted respect but he went about getting it the wrong way! Author Richard Wright made me a reader. P.S. Always Remember We Are Blessed By The Best!"
