Sorry Greg, I didn't look at the link until now. I also thought Harper Lee was no longer with us though I had no evidence of that.
I read "To Kill a Mockingbird", the first time, when I was about twelve and have re-read it. My son did it at school and I read it with him. Also saw the film. One of our forum members named himself after one of the characters (Boo Radley?). Excellent book and I look forward to reading the next one. I remember sj saying it wasn't the sort of book she would choose to read, she doesn't know what she is missing!

looked at this as thought it was about The Hunger Games, Book 3 Film 2 and I've only just ordered the latest on DVD, which is the film version of Book 3 - but part 1.
Forgive my ramblings - had to laugh at myself.
Those who know the books/films might get what I mean.

Anyway - we did 'To Kill A Mockingbird' at school - shame most of us were too young then to fully appreciate it - however, did later - book and Greg Peck film.

Ought to read it one day, but I probably won't. I suppose I could always walk into a cocktail bar and ask for a tequila mockingbird.

I never read To Kill a Mockingbird, but I saw it in the Indigo bookstore the other week. I have no intention of reading it. You have only got to look at the relationship between black and white in Ferguson or more recently Baltimore, to know nothing much changes in the USA.
I bought two books that day by John LeCarre.more to my taste.
