Weekly Geeks, August 1-7
Until I feared I would lose it, I never loved to read. One does not love breathing.
- Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird
This week’s Geeks is about To Kill a Mockingbird. While it’s a brilliant book and I love it more every time I read it, it’s not a book that changed my life.
It didn’t change my perspective on race; it was just incredibly well-written. The novel is populated with Good People who Do The Right Thing fighting against Injustice and Intolerance, and I agree that it’s an important book that everyone should read. But I can’t say much more than that.
So with that, I’ll leave you with the answers to last week’s author picture quiz and call it a post! Hope you all had a lovely weekend, and if you have more to say about TKAM than I did, please leave your thoughts in the comments form!
