Yesterday, I went on Facebook and my newsfeed was blown up by news that I actually cared about that doesn’t involve the vaccination debate or the inordinate amounts of snow my hometown is getting.
Harper Lee is publishing a new book!
If you haven’t heard, then check out this article from the New York Times.
Okay, a new-to-the-world book. She actually wrote it many, many years ago.
I promptly “reposted” an article on my friend V’s wall. Because she is someone who shares with me an unhealthy obsession with the wonderful novel that we coined “To Kill a Bird” in grade 10 IB English. We did presentations that were way overdone with excessive bristol boards and background research. We finished the book before we were supposed to and re-read it and loved the movie.
I’m excited. I know other people are too.
And I don’t usually even like sequels that much (although I do have to read them for closure).
As a big nerd, I must admit, this is a book that I am looking forward to more than many other books that I have excessively looked forward to.
