GoogleLitTrips Reading List's insight:

28 April 2014

 

With thanks to Rebecca Fortelka, one of my all time favorite former students, here's great news for fans of To Kill a Mockingbird.

 

At 88, Harper Lee is going digital; as have "digital holdouts from JK Rowling to Ray Bradbury changing their minds over the past few years..."

 

Can you read the writing on the tablet? 

 

I've long advocated for the preferred medium of accessing great literature should be determined by the reader. 

 

Let's hear it for one of the greats making it possible for the reader to access her beautiful masterpiece in their preferred medium!

GoogleLitTrips Reading List's insight:

 

Sigh!

What would Atticus Finch do?

 

Though innocent until proven guilty, I certainly hope justice is served.

 

I'd hate to hear that the accusation is true and that Harper Lee lost the case anyway.

 

This saddens me as much as it saddened us all when Atticus lost his case.

 

Why do bad things happen to good people?
