  5. GWTW is among my top five favorite books of all time, and that says a lot. Is it a re-read or a first read for you? I love seeing the reactions of people reading it for the first time. Either way, enjoy!

  9. Congratulations on being chosen! :)I haven't read To Kill a Mockingbird since highschool. I might have to re-read it. I don't remember a whole lot from it. Plus, I was in the rebellious stage and didn't like it purely for the fact we were forced to read it. Haha..

  10. To Kill a Mockingbird is one of my all time favorites!! I am such a nerd, one Easter I just wrote the names of the characters on my Easter Eggs with white crayon and then dyed them colors, so the only decoration on my eggs was Jem, Boo, Scout, Atticus, etc. Lol.

  11. I am so glad you have inspired all these people to read To Kill a Mockingbird. It's one of my favorites! Great setting, characters, and plot. It's got it all (and you can't say that about all of the classics, although I do enjoy revisiting them. Good for you to explore some…)

  12. I have The Chaperone on my TBR list! I really need to get a kick in the ass and get to it. My English teacher in high school spent a whole semester on TKAM. She kinda killed it for me. :-s
