I finished reading (okay, listening to) To Kill A Mockingbird again yesterday. I think it may be safe to say that it is my favorite book of all time. I love every character, and the sweet, slightly naïve way that it was written. (Oh yeah, and I love the movie, because Gregory Peck is so handsome).

I dream of finding the book with this Penguin cover one day. It was the model used for the cover of Seven Hundred Penguins.


  1. I completely agree! happy 50th anniversary To Kill a Mockingbird!
    I named my kitten Scout. I might need to get a boy and name it Jem.

  2. Oh, wow! I didn't even realize that! Happy 50th!
    Scout is an adorable name, and Gem would be sweet too.

  3. I have this edition


    which I LOVE LOVE I bought because I loved the cover, and did not expect to love reading it as much as I did. I think I was in the one year at my school that wasn't forced to pull this book to bits for English x

  4. Dianne, that cover is nice! Thanks for sending that. We were asked to read it for English class, but I didn't appreciate it until I read it again a few years later. It's still a favorite!
