This is the kind of book where you feel like you‘re right there with Scout and Jem, whether it‘s harassing the Radley‘s, playing with Dill, or watching Tom Robinson‘s trial from the balcony. This truly is a masterpiece that will stay with you forever. #Classicschallenge2020 #GAR
Today‘s scores from The Little Free Library on my walk. My arms got tired carrying them so I sat down for a spell in the park and took this picture. The bottom book was slightly damaged from all the rain we have been getting lately which will hopefully turn Australia green instead of red from the fires.
Does anyone else have a bookish bucket list? I just made mine.
This was a long book list! How many have you read?
I've read TKaM numerous times and each time, the older I get, I'm still floored. I truely enjoyed this version as a graphic novel. It's well done and doesn't remove the many social issues-class, politics, poverty, gender and race that have made the story relevant to any discussion.
Scout, Jem, and their dad Atticus Finch live in Maycomb Alabama during the Great Depression. Their father Atticus is a lawyer. Atticus decides to defend a black man named Tom Robinson from accusations of raping a white woman. Because of Atticus‘s decision to defend him Scout and Jem get teased. This is a sad story about racism but is a classic, I‘m so glad I picked it up to read. It‘s a small book but the pages are packed with an amazing story.
He would be there all night, and he would be there when Jem waked up in the morning.

Damn, I forgot how FANTASTIC this book is. The last time I read it was about fifteen years ago, and I know so much of this book went right over my head the first time around. I cried so hard at Tom's trial! I'm so glad I got to experience this gem of a book again. It's absolutely incredible. 😍📚💕 #catsoflitsy #littenkitten #roxas #readtheusa2020
Fantastic book. Reading this book so late has really helped me. The whole story takes place few years back in time. It not just focus on a single issue but shows the lifestyle of people in those days. It's very realistic and no exaggeration. There is no hero or heroine in the novel. The story itself is the hero. The writer indulges you into every character in the story very slowly and then pulls the story out. Loved it ❤️
Tom Robinson was a black man accused of raping a young girl. Atticus accepted to represent him. He didn't get good feedback. Mayella Ewell was lying but Tom was still convinced. Scout and Jem were attacked by Bob Ewell and Boo saves them.
Main problem was Atticus was representing Tom. Bob accused Tom of raping his daughter.
Boo was able to rescue his brother and Scout. Scout found out Boo was a full man.
I got to read this as part of my book club. It was a good story. The characters were well developed. I just felt like there was always another thing happening. A lot of events in a timeline that made it feel like it wasn‘t ever going to end.
I love that my career as an English teacher allows me the opportunity to share the classics with a whole new generation. These symbol drawings are ? from one of my freshmen. Seriously, I get to talk about books all day long. I have the best "job" in the world! ?
Day 13 - #HonorableCharacter #DearDecember
In Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird, Atticus doesn't specifically give a literal definition of honor. However, he does define courage, and based on his definition of courage and his actions, we can deduce what he sees as honorable.
The "quote" is about Scout talking about the plot of this book that she asked Atticus to read for her, and I think the book just ends in a truly magnificent way like this. I basically breezed through this book in a few days. Although Go Set a Watchman was kind of disappointing... Well, I better quit rambling.
P.S. This is my last quote on To Kill a Mockingbird! I hope to post about the quotes from other books when I get the chance.
This is when Jem talks to Scout about there being four kinds of folks in Maycomb County, and when Scout tells him about her opinion. The part I liked is basically from "Naw, Jem, I think there's just one kind of folks. Folks." to the end of this page, ending with "it's because he WANTS to stay inside."
This is when Jem gets something special from Mrs. Dubose, and the quote that I wasn't able to type word for word because of lack of space, which begins from "I wanted tou to see something about her." I wonder if I should upload a photo of the quote from now on instead? Anyway, I recently read To Kill a Mockingbird for the second time and it was as good as the first time.
“I wanted you to see something about her - I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It's when you know you're licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what. You rarely win, but sometimes you do.“ - Atticus
There are three sentences of Atticus' that follow after this, but apparently the whole thing is too long to post at once. Oh, well.
“Don't fret, Jem. Things are never as bad as they seem.“ - Miss Maudie Atkinson
“as I waited I thought, Atticus Finch won't win, he can't win, but he's the only man in these parts who can keep a jury out so long in a case like that. And I thought to myself, well, we're making a step - it's just a baby-step, but it's a step.“ - Miss Maudie Atkinson
Do I need to keep this book on my shelf? I read it in 1995, thought it was a fine book and duly shelved it, but I'm unlikely (I think) to read it again, and if I do, I can get it from the library.
The concept of releasing my books into the wild isn't entirely foreign to me, but I still struggle to balance my desire to keep books with my need for shelf space.
