"I'm still old-fashioned. I love dusty old books and libraries," Lee, who turned 88 on Monday, said through her publisher. "I am amazed and humbled that 'Mockingbird' has survived this long. This is 'Mockingbird' for a new generation."
"Every home has a dog-eared copy of 'To Kill a Mockingbird,' and now readers will be able to add this favorite book to their digital libraries," Michael Morrison, president and publisher of HarperCollins U.S. General Books Group and Canada, said in a statement. "Although today is Nelle Harper Lee's birthday, she is giving readers around the world the gift of being able to read or listen to this extraordinary story in all formats."

The new audiobook will be a downloadable edition of the existing CD narrated by Sissy Spacek. Harper also is releasing an "enhanced" e-book that will feature additional material. Spokeswoman Tina Andreadis said the extra features had not yet been determined.
