Hit hour 3 flipping between these two very different books. Might be wrapping up my reading for day 1. Hopefully can put in some serious reading time tomorrow when I don‘t have to spend half the day with my eyes dilated from the eye doctor.

21 points for 2 more readathon hours!

My God, Hellen Keller‘s autobiography is amazing. Listened to it in the car with wife and son. Just amazing. (Trivia: My French grandmother met her socially in Cambridge—she was 20 years her senior. I wish I had more details.)

This classic memoir continues to move me every time I read it. I especially enjoyed the chapters Helen wrote about all the books she adored reading. It still amazes me how her beloved teacher Anne Sullivan attended college classes with Helen since many textbooks at the time weren‘t available in Braille. Oh, the tenacity of these empowering women! 💕 This video says it all: https://youtu.be/GzlriQv16gg

This short book is a glowing testament to the will and determination of human spirit, and to the enjoyment of life even in the face of seemingly insurmountable obstacles. Helen Keller, blind and deaf, learns to read, write, speak, enrolls in college, enjoys swimming, bicycling and theater. Her language is rich and eloquent, she describes her sensations vividly, and her joy of life leaps off the pages - an inspiration to all of us.

Beautiful, inspirational and a literary delight to the senses! I just can‘t get over the fact of how much she accomplished given deafness and blindness. She lived stubbornly to pave her own path to joy. A lesson in gratitude and vulnerability and bravery to anyone who‘s game to listen. I wish she wrote more...do you know she loved to crochet and knit, too?!?

“Literature is my utopia.”

Just finished an audiobook of Helen Keller‘s autobiography with my kids and Helen Keller and I totally would have been friends. She speaks of book friends, tree friends, and overcoming adversity. She was a reader before she was even able to talk or write and loved the friendship of books...they never looked down at her or discriminated against her. How many lives we can live through literature!

noush I just was about to read this book! Wow! What a beautiful description. I would have been friends with Helen Keller too! :) 2y

It has been ONE OF THOSE WEEKS. I know people cleverly call sassy three year olds “threenagers” ...but is there a word for hysterical 4 year olds‽‽ ?

MarriedtoMrT Ugh! My four year old is being SUPER four this week, too. I‘ve seen fournager bandied about. Still, it would be nice for the four struggle to have it‘s own name! 2y

Really interesting until the tedious part about the books she read in college. I also wish this book covered her activist career.

Read this with my daughter for school this week. Wow! I had no idea how many marvelous achievements this woman made. Deaf & blind from the age of 19 months old, yet later in life learned not only how to speak & read but to do so in 4+ languages! 😲I have no impairments & can barely manage picking up bits & pieces of a second language. LoL Highly recommend this inspirational & fast paced book. Keller's story is one worth reading for sure. 👍

britt_brooke This book blew me away. 3y

Truly a phenomenal woman - with other remarkable women (& men) in her life - who achieved a great deal in a time when opportunities for women (not to mention deaf/blind women) were scarce. Once can only imagine the things Keller would achieve had she been alive in our time and with our technologies.
