Last week I read To Kill A Mockingbird for the first time, and I will never be the same again. I have never read a book so quickly, so feverishly. I fell in love with the Finch family and with Maycomb County and now I am yearning for a small southern-town life. Atticus Finch is my latest hero and when I think of him I just hope that I will be as good a parent and as good a person as he. This book was encouraging, inspiring and most of all extremely captivating- I am itching to read it again and it hasn't been but a week since I put it down!
I have seen the movie several times, but it never did resonate like the book. If you haven't read it yet, or if you haven't picked it up since jr.high- I suggest you do so now, before Summer is over. It was a great Summer read, and a quickie too!
