In response to Second Time Around
‘Tell us about a book you can read again and again without getting bored — what is it that speaks to you?’
Wow. Where do I even begin. I have so many books that I’ve read more than once…
I suppose my absolute go-to book that I could never read too many times is Harper Lee’s ‘To Kill A Mockingbird’.
This isn’t because I was a tomboy like Scout, I like wearing dresses and being the girl that Scout refused to be.
Perhaps it was the loving bond and realistic relationship of Jem and Scout.
It was definitely something about Atticus though. The way he allowed his children to get on with their lives but still managed to teach them many important lessons. And he taught me those lessons too, I probably knew them by the 5th time I’d read it but that didn’t stop me reading it a total of 13 times.
I think it’s just one of those books that you fall in love with and carry in your soul for the rest of your life.
