Good Morning I am trying to get this prompt upas quickly as I can
The question for this week is Do you find yourself predisposed to like or dislike books that are generally accepted as great books and have been incorporated as literary canon>Discuss the affect you believe book'
"status" has on your opinon?
I tend to be interested in books that seem to make the bestseller's list. I think that all those people can't be wrong. Boy was I wrong. James Baldwin wrote a book called "Go tell it on the Mountain"
I wasn't to impressed withit . As an African-American I feel a pressure sometimes not to bash other
African-american writers especially not ones who are this well know and I do honestly like some of the other books.As I get older ,however, I don't feel the so-called pressure as much . I don't think being honest about
how you feel about a book is the same thing as a character assasination of some sort.
