To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

library book
"Mockingbirds don't do one thing but make music for us to enjoy. They don't eat up people's gardens, don't nest in corncribs, they don't do one thing but sing their hearts out for us. That's why it's a sin to kill a mockingbird." - From To Kill A Mockingbird

You've probably already read this book. It is another of my all time favorites, and I will read it again. I love that it was told through the eyes of a child, Scout. It gives it an innocent authority that touches your heart. If you haven't read it try it. If you had to read it years ago for a class assignment try it again. I have found that as an older person, I appreciate the story and Lee's writing much more than I did years ago. 5
