Hi del, I got an ebook emailed to me and didn't use it so if you have an email address I could try to forward it to you so you could download to your laptop. Pm me when you can.

I went to our library to borrow 'To kill a Mockingbird'. Librarian found me a copy and she said she was reading 'Go set a watchman', 'Isn't it good?' She said, 'what a gifted writer', :)

Well Ms Penny, I hope I am too much of a gentleman to beat up on an 85 year old lady, and if I thought there was a chance she would join us on book talk I would not say what follows. Her novel arrived today and I read part one. In all my life I have never been so certain Harper Lee did not write TKAM or without the heavy editing of Truman Capote. I have read better written papers by college freshman in English lit classes. It is like she was drummed into the phrase "describe don't tell" to the point I never found a thesis statement in the first three chapters. You, sweet kind, charitable Ms. Penny say it gets better. Harper Collins assigned some basement level promotions clerk to write the promotion line for the cover and the best he/she could do was, "Written in the mid-1950s, GSAW imparts a fuller, richer understanding and appreciation of Harper Lee." Well la-de-da. the front cover says the book is a novel not a biography. I'm in for a penny, and in for a pound so I'll finish the read on my trip to Americus Kansas for my Grandson's wedding but I won't be posting for a week. Love to all. L

Lawrence, I am on holiday too with my three kids and my five. Grandchildren, in Devon, glorious Devon. But if a man could write 'diary of a Geisha'. Or was it 'journal' ??? Then anybody could write anything - I enjoyed both TKAM and GSAW equally... So What does it matter? 8)
