My reading progress is currently in a steady rate. As for any new challenges, I have been developing my vocabulary by writing down the words I can't at that moment comprend and gradually improving my PPM. But I haven't yet reach the speed that I want to achieve so I'll have to strive and pursue the goal. I have also picked up To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee again for my AP book read.
Taking place at court Jem's father Atticus (Lawyer) is defending a black man (Defendant) for being accused for raping a white woman (victim) and Atticus is suspecting that's not what happen. When the victim went to the stand Atticus begins to ask a series of questions to also have everything slowly coming to light. Now slipping up with her word the victim has started to reveal the lies in her testimony and I feel Harper Lee illustrates that your lies will come back in the end to hurt you. "She was white, and she tempted a Negro. She did something that in our society is unspeakable: she kissed a black man. No code mattered to her before she broke it, but it came crashing down on her afterwards."(Lee 204) Not only did the truth come a foot but she also broke her people code.
