Ending and Beginning



(Photo from Wikipedia)

I've finished reading I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, the story of the young life of Marguerite Johnson, also known as Maya. I loved the ending but won't reveal what happens lest I spoil it for someone else who may read this book. I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings is the beginning book of this seven-volume series by Maya Angelou:

  1. I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings
  2. Gather Together in My Name
  3. Singin' and Swingin' and Gettin' Merry Like Christmas
  4. The Heart of a Woman
  5. Maya Angelou: Poems
  6. I Shall Not Be Moved
  7. Wouldn't Take Nothing For My Journey Now

Maya Angelou's voice feels real and honest, and her stories hold my attention. I'll definitely look for more of her books.

I've a new book to begin, which is actually an old book that I loved as a child, Amy Moves In, by Marilyn Sachs. I wonder if I'll still find it as appealing as I did as a youngster, and if my daughter will enjoy reading it?
