I dag er det bloggdato for To Kill A Mockingbird og selv om jeg har hatt god tid på meg har jeg ikke klart å bli ferdig med boken. Jeg vet ikke, men den fenger ikke helt. Jeg har litt over hundre sider igjen så det kan jo hende jeg bruker litt av søndagen til å lese den ut. Her er i alle fall en smakebit:
"I'd rather you shot at tin cans in the back yard, but I know you'll go after birds. Shoot all the bluejays your want, if you can hit'em, but remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird."
That was the only time I ever heard Atticus say it was a sin to do something, and I asked Miss Maudie about it.
"Your father's right," she said. "Mockingbirds don't do one thing but make music for us to enjoy. They don't eat up people's gardens, don't nest in corncribs, they don't do one thing but sing their hearts our for us. That's why it's a sin to kill a mockingbird."
