I'm back and Part 1 Discussion of To Kill a Mockingbird (Possible spoilers)

Boston was FABULOUS and I didn't mind the 'no books/kindle allowed' agreement :-) 

With that said I am not as far into To Kill a Mockingbird as I thought but would like to discuss Part 1, especially with those that are reading for the first time like me.

I was surprised not to see Bookstores promoting TKAM for such a great classic anniversary though.

Part 1 - Chapters 1 - 11

What was your first impression while reading?

I had a hard time getting into it actually then I started enjoying Scout and Atticus, they are my favourite characters for sure.

Did you note a favourite scene, what was it about?

When it started snowing, the reactions and the building of the snowman, that was a priceless moment for me.


I love the gifts in the tree, I was heartbroken along with them when the hole was cemented up.

Did you note a favourite quote, please share?

said Atticus, "but before I can live with other folks I've got to live with myself.  The one thing that doesn't abide by majority rule is a person's conscience."

How do you react when a books title is revealed, it always makes me smile.
