    It's the worlds only sin, to kill a mockingbird.

    I loved the way the book was written, how the plot unfolded, the way it caused one o think, I simply didn't much care for the content of the actual story. So yes, in a way I both liked and disliked it.

    I have purchased yet another copy of To Kill A Mockingbird.

    I've bought probably 10 or more of them over the years. When I'm done reading, I gift them out. Sharing the Dil, Scout and Jem love.

    hey everybody. i just talked to ves and she has questions and is going to post them. but she is in california and that puts her in the pacific time zone (so that's the first thing) plus they don't have their internet hooked up yet and the only place with free wifi is (get this) the local bar!

    so, she's going to post questions but it will be later tonight - i think that's tonight her time which will be even later tonight for those of us in the eastern time slot. but, hey jean will be awake i think. and so will all of the pacific coast!

    so hang on, and questions will arrive.

    Btw, i should mention that according to what we spoke of earlier today is the FIRST OFFICIAL DAY of The Bookclub (remember we start in November, like anyone cares about starting date. half of you have already read, reread, and wrote a 200 page report on int)

    Default Let The Discussion Begin!!!!!!!

    so i talked with ves again. hopefully they'll have the internet soon but apparently everybody in business in joshua tree spends all their time stoned. as much as i know that appeals to certain members here (not naming any names . . . even though i could), it's really not conducive to getting any business accomplished.

    so, here are some inaugural questions to kick off the discussion. these come straight from the dessert empress herself (or her pm box anyway), so don't shoot the mockingbird (er, i mean the messenger!). please don't feel like you have to use one or two sentences to answer these questions. this is a discussion, so don't hesitate to answer fully and completely. also, don't feel like you have to answer all of them. if one or two of them strike your fancy, just write us a dissertation on them and forget about the rest. your thoughts are welcome, in any shape or size. your words are welcome, in any manner or guise.

    now, let the wild rumpus start! (er, um, i mean the discussion of course. )


    1. How and when did you first come to read To Kill A Mockingbird?


    2. Why does Atticus say that it's a sin to kill a mockingbird?


    3. Why do you think that killing a mockingbird is the only thing in the entire book, in the children's entire lives, that Atticus condemns as a sin?


    4. Who is your favorite minor character in the book?


    5. What are three memorable moments in the book?


    6. What is the most touching moment of the book?


    7. What is the most shocking moment of the book?

    Gonna take a quick shot at these, get things rolling, I hope.

    ( removed indicators of spoiler tags )

    1. How and when did you first come to read To Kill A Mockingbird?
    My first time with Mockingbird was actually a Social Studies ( social science ) class in the 8th grade. I'd like to officially thank Mr.Fishman right now, because it's about my favorite book.

    2. Why does Atticus say that it's a sin to kill a mockingbird?
    Because the mockingbird's only mission on life is to bring beauty to others.

    3. Why do you think that killing a mockingbird is the only thing in the entire book, in the children's entire lives, that Atticus condemns as a sin?
    I think he uses it as an example, in simple terms, to help his children understand. It means more than what he says, and I think he knows his children understand that.

    4. Who is your favorite minor character in the book?
    Is Dill a minor character? I love Dill. "I'm little, but I'm old."

    5. What are three memorable moments in the book?
    The most memorable has to be be when Scout recognizes Boo in Jem's room.

    Next would be when you realize the first line of the book is so critical in the end of the book. I think that is genius.

    Third would have to be the big reveal at the courthouse where we learn Tom Robinson is actually disabled and physically unable to commit the crimes he's accused of.

    6. What is the most touching moment of the book?
    Scout agreeing with Sheriff Heck about Boo, and not sharing with the whole county what really happened with Boo, Tom and Jem.

    7. What is the most shocking moment of the book?
    Tom's death. I think in today's books and films even, we expect justice to prevail, and here it does not.
