I am reading To Kill a Mocking Bird, by Harper Lee courtesy of Harperperennial (Modern Classics) Thank you Amy.
Yesterday marked the 50th anniversary of the book, and I have never read it. I have seen the movie a few times. I have to say out of all the book notes and commentary I have ever heard, this one seems to top many, if not, most lists. I am sorry I haven't read it but in a way it is cool to have something so great to read now when I can appreciate it most.
I am so thrilled to be reading this book this Summer. I can't wait to report back on it.
