I finished To Kill a Mockingbird

to kill a mockingbirdAfter posting last night I grabbed it to read one chapter in it before I went to sleep. Well...that one chapter turned into the rest of the book. Sigh.

I love it. As much as I will acknowledge that I feel like I should have read Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird earlier, I'm kind of glad that my English class didn't read this book. I don't think I would have appreciated it nearly as much being assigned to read as I did reading it for pleasure. Plus, if I had been assigned it in high school I would have read it from an itty-bitty trade paperback that who knows how many others have also read from instead of this great pristine paperback edition with nice thick pages. I really loved this edition.

I can't really think of anything to say that Mocha Momma didn't say earlier this week when she posted about To Kill A Mockingbird for banned books week.

Now I gotta find a copy of the movie, which I've never watched because I believed I should read the book first, yet even I pictured Gregory Peck as Atticus.
