Get your copy of To Kill a Mockingbird!

This week, we will begin reading To Kill a Mockingbird, so you will need to check out or buy a copy to use. While I almost always recommend buying your own copy so that you can annotate it and make it your own, I will be referring to page numbers in class and on worksheets, so if you buy your own, be sure to get the same edition that we use in class. Of course, sometimes Amazon will send you an edition you didn't order, so the safest thing to do is check out a copy from me. I have plenty of copies to hand out to everyone, so I will do that in class. Distance learners will need to email me to let me know they want me to leave a copy for them in the front office. Contact me as soon as possible so you can begin reading with everyone else. This is one of my favorite books of all time, so I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. :)
