I have a confession to make....

I have never read To Kill a Mockingbird.  

I know, shocking right? Hasn't everyone read that book? Some of you may even be thinking "Wait a minute, isn't your son named Harper Lee?" Well hold on right there. Yes my son's name is Harper Lee, but he wasn't named after the author. He was named after his great great grandfather {Sammie Harper} and his dad {Christopher Lee}. So there you have it, no reading of Harper Lee books for me, that is until yesterday.

The red headed fox and I were laying in bed and I had just finished up Dead in the Family by Charlaine Harris (True Blood anyone?) and I was looking at my stack of books I keep on the bed headboard. I picked up To Kill a Mockingbird and flipped through it but didn't really give it the attention it deserved. I mean come on, I had just finished a Vampire/Werewolf masterpiece (ok, lets be real, that last book wasn't near as good as I had hoped) but still. When I went to put it back in the stack the red headed fox looked over to me and said "Is that To Kill a Mockingbird? That's a great book, GREAT book" nodded his head and went back to what he was doing. Excuse me?!? You mean to tell me that the red headed fox (who doesn't read near as much as I do if ever) has read To Kill a Mockingbird and I haven't? Well, you all know I had to read it then.

So if you'll excuse me I have some reading to do. Hope you have a lovely Sunday night!

Love & Robots,
