Book Meme

Atomic Mama has tossed out a book meme. Since I can't pass up a book themed post...to give everyone a "mommyotony" (that should be a new word in wikipedia don't ya think?) break from my sewing escapades and a less needed break from the cutest kids in the world I present the rules:

1. Find the nearest book.
2. Open to page 123
3. Type lines 6-8
4. Tag 3 others to do the same.

"You all know their father. Before I begin I will read some announcements."
Reverend Sykes shfffled some papers, chose one and held it at arm's length. "The Missionary Society meets in the home of Sister Annette Reeves next Tuesday. Bring your sewing."

Can you guess the book? It is one of my favorite books of all time and I could never have guessed.

To Kill A Mocking Bird by Harper Lee

You know that it is urban legend that Truman Capote is rumored to have truly authored this book right? Truman and Harper were good friends. I for one find anything having anything to do with Truman Capote facinating. Have you read To Kill A Mockingbird? It is make your heart ache good. Racism, the American South, lawyers who are good people, people with special needs, kids without mothers...now that's a good read.

Hey did you catch the line "bring your sewing". I am laughing out loud. There truly are no coincidences in life.

Tag three others: Elsie's mom, Maisie's mom, LT's mom

Great book! Now I wish I had cheated and found something better...

My FIL had a signed first edition copy of To Kill a Mockingbird. It went up in flames in a house fire years ago... sigh.

Funny thing is that my quote would be yours exactly! o Kill a Mockingbird is sitting right by my computer. After seeing the movie "Capote" recently, I bought both Mockingbird and In Cold Blood and am just now re-reading To Kill a Mockingbird... great book!
