  1. To Kill A Mockingbird is simply an amazing classic that everyone must read. I’m so glad you read it and enjoyed it. I’ve read it a few times, and I will have to read it again sometime soon. I agree “A Must Read.”

  2. I have to admit that I’m kind of jealous of you getting to experience this book for the first time. When I think back on my childhood, my dad “ruled the roost” in a very similar way. When knew his values and what he expected of us, so he didn’t really make rules. But, the last thing we wanted to do was disappoint him.

  3. Can you imagine writing a book like this as your debut? No wonder she just threw up her hands and disappeared. I only read it for the first time a couple of years ago, all the while grumbling that my high school teachers had wronged me again. Actually, though, I’m sure I appreciated it much more now than I would have when all I really cared about was boys.

    I’m so glad you liked it. It is one of my all time favorites. I’m very excited to reread it this year, not only because of the anniversary but also because my son will be reading it for the first time for his English class and I know he and I will have much to discuss!

  5. I wish I had been equally inspired – I wanted to get in there and read it but still haven’t found the time. It’s on “The List”!

  6. I have such fond memories of reading this one as a 14-year-old the summer I went into high school — and it really is a classic! Though I remember it clearly, it would be really fun to re-read as an adult… and more avid reader than I was back then.

  7. I recently read this for the first time and was blown away by it. I just love novels with eccentric characters, but there is so much going on in this book you could talk about it for days!

    I also read this for the first time in July. I really enjoyed it; and I’m glad you did too. I’ll definitely re-read it.
