SusannaG - Confessions of a Crazy Cat Lady

Just another GR refugee.  Other than that, I had a stroke in 2004, and read almost anything I can get my hands on, though I have a particular weakness for history, mystery, and historical fiction.

The Mass-Market Paperback "To Kill a Mockingbird" Is No More

— feeling angry

It is an ex-book.  (Sorry, I grew up on the Pythons!)


But the estate of Harper Lee has ordered the discontinuation of the mass market paperback edition of To Kill a Mockingbird, which is by far both the cheapest and the most-bought.


It's also the edition most bought by the public schools, who have to count their pennies.

I, for one, blame the attorney who took over management of first Harper Lee, and then her estate, after Miss Lee's sister died a few years ago.
