Yup, re-read this recently and only available in paperback. The only related thing you can get on kindle are the study notes.

I studied this book at secondary school and absolutely loved re-reading it as an adult - it is a masterpiece.

The publishers have produced a gorgeous 50th anniversary edition in hardback, with a cloth cover a bit like a Folio Society one (but cheaper). I'm trying to justify buying it but haven't managed yet.

I wonder why it's not on Kindle?

I've heard somewhere that Harper Lee won't allow its release onto kindle. Not sure if that's true though. I want to re-read it too. Haven't read it since I was at school.

I've heard of this book but never read it, what's it about? Is it really worth a read?

I got my copy in Asda of all places in the 2 for £7.00 offer. It was a while ago. Was its 50th anniversary edition.

rainbowriver - it's about the race and class issues in the Deep South of USA in the 1930s. Based in a small town and told from the viewpoint of two young children. Really, really good. It appears on virtually every "must read" list so definitely worth a go.

Rainbowriver - I had to read it for O level <shows age> & hated it because I was forced to share it with a slow reader who snurked at the n word. My English teacher gave a copy to me as a leaving present. I read it over the summer & fell in love with it. I've read it at least once a year since then.
