To Kill a Mockingbird

"Atticus told me to delete the adjectives and I'd have the facts" --Harper Lee
Whenever the forces of injustice confront me, I read this book. It happens more often than I'd like to admit. Still, I turn the last page and every time I have a feeling of hope.
I collect different editions of this book and wonder about the previous readers of that particular book. Mostly, I wonder how they ever let it go.
Here's to a weekend of less thinking, more kissing (the ones you love, of course),

Ah, yes- one of my all-time favorite books, too (and fave movie)- I almost named my daughter Scout.

"Mostly, I wonder how they ever let it go." - I love that line

I don't think I own a copy right now ... how did I let it go ... maybe it is in your collection

I have never collected various copies of the same book- love that

xo- Cat :)
have a wonderful weekend- supposed to be very hot...

Love that book! And I just saw the movie again last weekend for the umpteenth time.
Here's to a wonderful, peaceful relaxing weekend for all.

Just had a conversation with both my sons, who have both read the book. My 17 year old thinks it is perhaps one of the very best books ever written. I quite agree.
Ha - and I just read the last post - Catcher in the Rye is also one of the very best. (I was an English major, what can I say...)

I'll have to add this one to my wish list... can't say I've read it in quite a very long time. ♥
