My beach book in November

I just reread To Kill a Mockingbird this week. I fell into the pages of my father's old book.  It smelled like smoke and must.........probably the reason I don't have a Kindle.  I read it in the voice of Scout.  It was one of those beach books that all you want to do is read.  Friday was a cold and rainy November day.  I wanted to call in literary sick so bad.  but I went to school.  I did have silent reading in my class so I could read a little to myself on Friday. I told the kids to find a book that is their good fit.  One that is so good you get a flashlight and read under the covers. I showed them my old book. I told them it is so fun to cry during a book.  It shows you are really into it.   Everybody deserves that.  I cried on my couch when Atticus told Scout " You never really understand a person.........Until you climb into his skin and walk around in it." I want to put that on the front page of the paper.  If our congressmen did that.we would get so much more done!

 I read aloud to my dogs- they love Alabama accent.  I say to my little dog...hey Boo. i call my mother and have book club with her on the phone.  I want to talk about it.  I can't wait  to read it again next time.
