Pardon me for not italicizing the titles. I will have to read To Kill a Mockingbird within the next week for the library's book discussion group. I read the book many years ago but it probably wouldn't hurt to reread it.

To be continued...

Carol Neman | 469 comments Thank you for listing the books with the title first. A long list with author's last name first, then first name, then title (with no semicolon or hyphen to separate the two) was very confusing (to me at least. Someone else actually did it that way). Also, there is a way to link a title to the excerpt page by either having it underlined, or with the book's cover icon, so that people can click on it and be able to read reviews without having to copy down the title (or author) then go to 'find books' and type in the title...but I don't know how to do that myself either, yet, so alas, I can't tell you how to do that.

Welcome to GoodReads, may you gain much pleasure from being here.
