This is for you Titmoss.... :)

I just finished reading To Kill A Mocking Bird by Harper Lee. I LOVED it. It's a sometimes sad, sometimes scary, sometimes shocking, sometimes funny and always heartfelt book about the men and women, white and black living in a small town in Alabama in the 1930's. It deals with prejudice, government, education and family.... all (and here's the best part) from the eyes of a 6 year-old girl named Jean-Louis (she prefers Scout though, OK?). It covers about 2 years of her and her 11 year-old brothers (Jem) lives. A very moving and lovely book.

It was made into a movie in 1962 starring Gregory Peck as Scout and Jem's father, Atticus. As Gregory Peck is one of my favorite actors (Roman Holiday *happy sigh*) I will try to rent it soon and let you all know how I liked it.

Have any of you read the book or seen the movie? If so, did you like it?

Keep reading.... :)

Oh! I love Gregory Peck! I rather want to read this book now....maybe one of these days after I finish some of the books I've already started. ;)

Aha! Just for me, huh? ;) You're too kind. And actually, this was so fitting a post too! I haven't read To Kill A Mockingbird, but have been thinking about it and wanting to read it for the longest time... it's just a matter of cheking it out or scrounging Amazon for it. ;) Please post more, and, tell us how the movie is.

Good show, Ladies!

I loved this book AND the movie too. I also scrolled down your list and discovered myself there among Jane's favorite authors. I'm humbled to be in such fine company. Please thank her for including my books in her life...and with your kind notice, in the lives of others as well. Happy reading! Warmly, Jane Kirkpatrick

Anna: Ha ha! I know how that is.

Titmoss: You should read it! It makes a great Summer read.

Jane Kirkpatrick:
Thank you so much for your kind comment. Your books are so wonderful! Especially the Tender Ties series. They are my favorite. :) My mom is reading your series about the Aurora Colony and loves it. I hope to read it soon!
