To Kill a Mockingbird is soooo good. I read it for the first time last year and don't know what took me so long.

Mockingbird is the only one I've read. But I agree, it is wonderful.

Congratulations on finishing this challenge. I'm glad you liked To Kill a Mockingbird. It is my all-time favorite book AND movie. I agree with you, Gregory Peck is the only person that could play Atticus Finch in my mind.

The new look on your blog is really classy! I too loved To Kill a Mockingbird. Scout is one of my all time favorite fictional characters. I still want to get to Bridge of San Luis Rey.

Congratulations on completing the challenge! The only thing I liked about the Shipping News was that it explained the movie a bit more.

Congrats on completing the challenge. I've only finished one of the books on your list. I started three others only to put them aside for various reasons. Good job.
