Hello to all -
Fair warning - unless you're a word geek like me you'll probably find my endless quoting and book recommendations tiresome after not very long. I
apologize for that in advance; it's just that I find words and books so crucial to life that I feel compelled to share their messages with others.
Sometimes I get lucky and come across a few that know exactly how I feel.
I've also discovered that the answer to the following question speaks volumes about a person. My answer to this question : The Grapes of Wrath.
Here's the question : In Farenheit 451, by R Bradbury, the protagonist meets a number of fugitives from the law who have taken it upon themselves to
memorize works of literature. If all books were to be someday banned by the government and burned, what book, if any, would YOU save from oblivion by
committing it to memory?
I think this question is, unfortunately, more relevant today than Ray ever imagined it would be...
