Living an Excerpt of a Life

My sister (the youngest) just passed what is in my mind a major milestone. She told me the magic words, "You should read this". Not a newspaper article, or a magazine, but a book. After learning that I've not read "To Kill a Mockingbird", she spoke those amazing words.
It's mind-boggling how full of information our existence has become in the past few years. Never has humankind had to deal with the sort of information overflow that is present in our generation. We don't read books, we read excerpts, summaries or reviews of books. Sometimes we even "read" the book from the blurb off the back of a videotape containing a poorly adapted motion picture somewhat loosely related to the story. We have become a people that skips past life. We don't live it to the fullest. We don't drink of its fullness. Fact is, you're probably skimming over this right now. Just sort of getting the gist of it. Not feeling. Not truly knowing. Well, that is until you read this.
I will read "To Kill a Mockingbird". Right after I'm done with "Tuesdays with Morrie", "Husbands and Wives" and a little of "Contemporary Issues Facing Christians Today".
