english 101 #5: in which I admit failure

  • About the author EB

As you may recall, our pick this month was The Sheltering Sky by Paul Bowles. But, although Kayleigh wrote a great post about her reading experience, I have found myself completely unable to pick up this book. I don’t know what it is, but sometimes when I know I HAVE to read a book, it becomes the last thing in the world I want to read.

I hate admitting failure, so I hereby swear that I WILL read this book before the end of the year. But in the meantime, I didn’t want to wait any longer to offer up books for next month’s english 101 . . . Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird!



July marks the 50th anniversary of this classic, and to celebrate Kayleigh and I will be re-reading it. But English101 won’t be the only read-a-long—Dawn at She is Too Fond of Books will also be hosting To Kill a Mockingbird Month on her blog, and so will Heather at Capricious Reader!

To get everyone started, I’m offering up some free copies! Just tell me why you want to read or re-read TKAM in the comments.
