Starting to re-read To Kill a Mockingbird for the first time since high school. I had to order a new copy because the school copy I just happened to still have was in shambles and had the first fifteen pages missing. I remember the story but have forgotten how delightful the prose is.
I also (unsurprisingly) picked up Go Set a Watchman. Reactions are mixed. Thereâ€™s controversy concerning its publication. Or not. I both understand and donâ€™t understand why people donâ€™t want to read it. Yet itâ€™s part of our shared American historyâ€”so Iâ€™m going to read it.
