Hey Guys! Let's make every Saturday SUPER BOOK SATURDAY and talk about our very favorite books! I'll start! One of my favorite books is Harper Lee's masterpiece, TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD. When I taught (fifteen years at South Intermediate High School in Broken Arrow, OK!), I liked to begin the year by teaching this book to my sophomores. I LOVED LOVED LOVED reading it aloud. Scout's point of view was hilarious and touching and insightful. One of my favorite quotes is near the beginning of the book, describing the southern heat: "Ladies bathed before noon, after their three o'clock naps, and by nightfall were like soft teacakes with frostings of sweat and sweet talcum."
