In My Mailbox - February 27th, 2011

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren.

To Kill a Mockingbird [Mass Market Paperback]To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee

ISBN: 0673583503
Edition I'm reading was published December 1982 by Warner Books (first published 1960)
Synopsis from Goodreads:
Set in the small Southern town of Maycomb, Alabama, during the Depression, To Kill a Mockingbird follows three years in the life of 8-year-old Scout Finch, her brother, Jem, and their father, Atticus--three years punctuated by the arrest and eventual trial of a young black man accused of raping a white woman. Though her story explores big themes, Harper Lee chooses to tell it through the eyes of a child. The result is a tough and tender novel of race, class, justice, and the pain of growing up.
The book pictured is not the edition I'm reading, or the edition that the publication information is for.  Amazon didn't have a picture for the edition I'm reading.

We're reading this book for school, and I have one of the school's copies.  Obviously, I'm not going to be keeping the book, but I felt like it could still qualify for In My Mailbox.


  1. To Kill a Mockingbird was definately one of the better classics I'd read in high school. hope you like it!

  2. Glad to see that your high school did not let book banners keep you from reading one of the best American classics of all time.

  3. Hope you love TKAM. I read it in school too. I haven't read it since - it's been about 15 years - I really want to re-read it.
