summer car trips

“When enough years had gone by to enable us to look back on them, we sometimes discussed the events leading to his accident. I maintain that the Ewells started it all, but Jem, who was four years my senior, said it started long before that. He said it began the summer Dill came to us, when Dill first gave us the idea of making Boo Radley come out.”

Harper Lee, To Kill A Mockingbird  

I read it in school.  I read it again in June of 2006.  I’ve listened to it on CD read by Sissy Spacek.

Sissy Spacek is Scout.

I cannot recommend the CD highly enough.  In fact, I often sit in my car listening, even after arriving at my destination.  It is that good.  Listening to it makes me want to read the book all over again.

Perfect for summer. Perfect for car trips. Or for any kind of trip. Perfect.
