I’m horribly behind on making this post, we’re already more than halfway through October. But I do still plan to read this. The hitch is that I can’t find my copy of To Kill a Mockingbird and I’ve looked everywhere for it! I don’t know how books can just disappear from my shelves but it always happens somehow.
To Kill a Mockingbird is one of my favorite books ever and it’s really important to me. I wrote about it here. So I’m really happy to be reading it again after a really really long time. I think the last time I read it I was in high school. Since I’m so behind on posts and on my reading, I’m only going to make one analysis post instead of the two that I did for The Great Gatsby. Join me in reading an analyzing To Kill a Mockingbird if you’d like.
Okay, I’ve fallen behind and have missed posting on several days. I’m really bad at this meme thing. And I’m still trying to finish the book that I’m currently reading. I swear I’ll catch up soon. But anyway, I had a hard time thinking of a book for this category. What is home really? I’ve lived in several places and called a lot of places home. Right now I don’t know where my home is, not really. But To Kill a Mockingbird reminds me of my fondest home, and that’s my childhood home in Washington. That’s where I first read this book and truly fell in love with the written word. I’ve read this book in different stages in my life and it’s never failed to affect me emotionally and intellectually. No matter where I go and what place I call home, this book will always have a place on my shelf and in my heart.
