To Kill a Mockingbird

To Kill a MockingbirdTo Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love this book. A classic. And I’m glad I re-read it. It was required reading in high school and I enjoyed it then. And probably more from the perspective of Scout who didn’t understand why the world didn’t see the injustice when it was so obvious to her. I think as an adult, there is a lot of respect for the character of Atticus, knowing how hard it can be to do the right thing when it seems you’re the only one ready to fight for it. This is a must read.

Persuasion

persuasion.JPG Persuasion took me a little longer than a 180+ page book should take, but I did it.  I think I saw the Jane Austen Book Club in October… and then bought the book shortly after that…  And then restarted it in April, and now today I finished it! Not bad!

In my defense it is a Jane Austen book, which means proper old English.  I am curious to know what I would think of it if I re-read it. I really enjoyed Pride or Prejudice, but I had a really good idea of what the story was when I read it, so I was able to pick up on more details.  Maybe I’ll go back and re-read this at some point, but for now I’m glad to be through it. And it was a good story!

Seriously, I’m just proud to have finished another book! This makes 3 since Maria was born, and finishing a book 2 months in a row! yeah, pathetic, but I’m still going to be proud!
