Subsequently she “writes an hour, sometimes two every day” so that she stays sharp. (175) Aibileen was apprehensive of her relationship with Skeeter, she worried that she could not truly trust her and that she would be in trouble, but as they continued to write the book Aibileen knew she would need to put her trust in Skeeter.

Without his passion for education, he would have never been in the position or had the determination to be one of the youngest presidents of the United States. Without his education, he would not have been able to accomplish what he did and had the keen mind and other traits that he had. He was a keen observer of life around him and his education was very important to him.

Her hair was wispy over a scalp that shows signs of pressure sores, pink from constant contact with the pillow. Nervously I asked, “Miss, would you like a book or magazine?” “It depends on the type of books you have,” she replied. From there, we engaged in a lively conversation about books that she had read.

My mother had a love of reading which she desperately tried to pass on to her children. I remember we would go to the Library all the time, which was one of my favorite memories as a child. My mom would tell us to pick out three books each and off we would go.

My mother would read to us every night, at first just some simple children’s books and then, as we got older, we would read novels together.
