To Kill a Mockingbird
Harper Lee

I'm sitting next to Nate in a computer lab on campus as he works on a project and I wonder what I could say about "To Kill a Mockingbird" that has not already been said. Timeless. A classic. A must-read for all. An important part of American history. An important part of Southern history.

And I honestly cannot think of much else to say. Of course I loved it. Even after reading it several times before. One new thought (for me at least) was that, "if only more parents would parent like Atticus!" His love for his children was never a mystery to them. He seemed to teach them life lessons with ease. I would have liked to have known him. (If only we could jump into our favorite books).

If you haven't read it, read it now. And if you have, well, read it again.

  1. I love that you read... and sadly... I hardly ever do... I am more of a non-fiction reader! Any good suggestions?

    1. I really like The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, The Book Thief, This is Not the Story You Think It Is and The Poisonwood Bible. :)

  2. I love that book, too! Also, I'm guessing you are in the geography lab. I LIVED in there for two years! A majority of my on-campus college memories involve that room.

  3. Definitely a classic. Read it as a parent for the first time a few weeks ago. So many good lessons! Atticus is a great dad, sooooo wise! Want to be more like him!
