Southern Reading Challenge: Third Review

To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee

No, I’m not really going to review To Kill a Mockingbird.  It needs no more reviews.  I’ll just say that after four? five? six? readings, it remains one of my very favorite books.  Every time I’ve revisited it, different things have jumped out at me, perhaps because of who I was at each particular moment.

My favorite image this time around?  I have only two words to say:  ham costume.

If you haven’t read it, then you shouldn’t be fooling around on the internet.  You should be making a mad dash to the bookstore or library.  Off you go, now.

My Southerness rating:  10 out of 10.  All the Southern.

    That is certainly one of the best books of all time. I think I was still in grade school when I first read it. I never really thought about it until now, but that was her only published novel.

    You are so right. One of my favorite books ever. And the connection between her and Truman Capote (another favorite) is awesome.

    I’ve read the book probably 10 times and seen the movie? I lost count a long time ago. Thanks for the reminder. Now a big decision. Do I watch it tonight or pick the book up again! And that ham costume? Still laughing! (at the costume, not what follows)
