In honor of Throwback Thursday, I ‘threw’ back to the best book ever written and did a re-read of To Kill A Mockingbird. Now available as an eBook so there is NO EXCUSE for not reading it immediately!!
I didn’t read Mockingbird in high school, in fact it was just two years ago that I picked up my first copy. It blew my mind. How was this book out there and I had never read it? Now I find myself willing to take more chances with books, I’m more open to reading “the classics” and I am reading not just more books but better books. I hope you will read Mockingbird. It may not change your life but it will be an enjoyable read. This is the review I posted after I read it for the first time.
To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee
The best book I’ve ever read. I finished it and turned to the first page and started reading it over again. I want to see the movie, read the Cliff’s Notes, download the study guides and tell every person I see today to stop what they’re doing and sit down and read this book!
It’s not a “coming-of-age” novel or a “crime” tale, “a civil rights” saga or “loaded with Southern charm from a bygone age”; except that it is-it’s all that and more and I want to read it over & over until I can recite pages of it and go to Alabama again and try to find Maycomb in every little town. I want to walk up to a man and gently say, “hey, Boo”. Oh my Lord, this book is good!!
Stop what you are doing and read it, right now.
