To Kill A Mockingbird

When I was a sophomore in high school my English teacher had us read To Kill A Mocking Bird. I really enjoyed reading it with my class and learning about all of the symbolism in the story. It really was a great read.

I recently reread To Kill A Mockingbird (Sadly I forgot a lot of the story line, hence the need to reread it). I have to say that I love this book as much as I loved it in high school.

One night I even convinced Andy to watch the old black and white version of the movie with me (after I finished the book of course). Andy isn't much of a reader but he really enjoyed the movie and the storyline.

If you have never read To Kill A Mockingbird you really should, you won't regret it!

*On a side note, I have 6 more books to read to accomplish my goal of reading 12 books this year. I'm half way there! Thanks Jenni for inspiring me to read more!


  1. What a great idea! I should totally have a goal of how many books I'm going to read each year! I like to read, but I don't make it a priority and other things always push it to the back burner. Unless of course it is a book I am reading with Trent. If we are reading a book together we seem to make time. I struggle if I'm reading it on my own. I get sidetracked with chores. Thanks for the advise!

    1. I find being married it is harder to find time to read. I read on my breaks at work and Andy and I try to read a little bit together each night before we go to bed-- reading together is great but I feel like it takes forever to finish a book. As of right now, we haven't finished a book as a couple yet. I guess it is all about the baby steps.
