message 1: by Susanna - Censored by GoodReads (last edited Mar 23, 2011 11:45AM) (new)

Susanna - Censored by GoodReads To Kill a Mockingbird was written in the 1960s, but I was under the definite impression it was set in the 1930s.

Also, I think The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test is non-fiction.

Carrie Yeah, can 'To Kill a Mockingbird' get taken off this list? doesnt belong here....


message 3: by Rebecca (new)

Rebecca Have done :)
