To Kill a Mockingbird - Harper Lee
I love this book. I think I've loved this book ever since it was given to me as a set text back in high school, but this time around I loved it even more. Why? I think it was because it was the first time I'd read it since becoming a parent and it gave me a whole new perspective.

This time, post kid (I only had one) I fell head over heels in love with Atticus Finch. When I mentioned this to my good friend Kim, she replied: "Everyone should be in love with Atticus. He's a role model for humanity." And you know what? I couldn't agree more. The world needs more people like Atticus Finch. Especially if they are parents.

Buddy reread with Anna :-).
