BOOKING THROUGH THURSDAY is a weekly bookish meme about (mostly) books and reading. Each week there is a new question to answer. This week’s question is about Harper Lee.
“So … will you be reading Go Set a Watchman: A Novel? Why? Why not? What do you think of this whole deal? Harper Lee, after all, is famous for insisting she wouldn’t publish another book, and now this … and the controversy about Atticus? Discuss!”
I am not planning to read this one. For one thing, I still am not convinced that that Harper Lee is on board with the publication of this novel. I hope she is fully aware and supportive of this decision, but I also worry that this is work that she hoped to keep private and that reading this would violate her privacy. I heard a little about the Atticus controversy, but haven’t paid much attention. But the main reason I will pass on this one is that I have yet to either read To Kill A Mockingbird or to watch the movie — and I have no plans to do either any time soon.
