About the Author

Harper Lee was born in 1926 in Monroeville, Alabama. She attended the local schools and studied law at the University of Alabama. For some years she spent most of her time in New York City, where, until she began writing, she was employed in the reservations department of an international airline. "Aside from writing," says Miss Lee, "my chief interests in life are collecting memoirs of nineteenth-century clergymen, golf, crime and music."

I just purchased a Nook and was very disappointed to see that B&N does not offer To Kill a Mockingbird as an ebook.

I was hoping to find the actual book To Kill a Mockingbird. When I looked at the sample of this book on line, it had study questions followed by the text of the book on the page displayed. I purchased the book but was never able locate the text. B&N will not refund my purchase due to copyright laws? Bad experience.

I have an iPad so I can read eBooks from Amazon, Borders, iTunes...all the stores and not one of them has To Kill A Mockingbird in eBook format so don't blame B&N. It must be the publisher or author's estate's decision not to allow it to be sold in this format. Someday...

Let me join the chorus of readers expressing disappointment that B&N does not have available on Nook the actual book, "To Kill a Mockingbird." This is terrible.

Complete disappointment. B&N needs to work on this. I can't believe it's not available for downloading to my Nook. What is wrong with this picture?

Well, Barnes & Noble, looks like there's a clear pattern going on here. Almost EVERYONE wants to read To Kill A Mockingbird on their Nooks.... and you don't have it. In all due respect, I'd say you'd better hurry up and offer it as a selection before you get more dissatisfied customers.

This is good for just a summary, but for a chapter overview it doesn't fare well. Not recommended for catching up on missed chapters!

I'm glad I read the reviews before the purchase. My contact on the chat line told me this was the book. I asked again because it clearly says SparkNotes. Again, she assured me it was the book and the notes. Very disappointed but glad I didn't purchase this book.

This fictional novel was written in the era of racism, the infamous 1960s. Though written when racial discrimination was commonly accepted, it radically imposes the thought of tolerance. Scout Finch is an aggressive, non-effeminate, little girl always looking for adventures that lurks throughout Maycomb County. Scout¿s curiosity leads her brother and herself into trying to catch a glimpse of the mysterious, Boo Radley. Being discreet as possible, Boo leaves subtle clues and gifts for the two within a log tree. Atticus Finch, Scout and Jem¿s father, forbids them to continue bothering poor Boo Radley. After being assigned the attorney for Tom Robinson, a persecuted African-American for rape, Atticus is tied up with a perilous task which burdens his family from the town. Sought as the ¿nigger-lovers¿, Atticus preserves his moral composure and does resists from violence, as the innocence of Scout and Jem slowly deteriorates. Atticus¿s unique personality understands the world¿s good and evil due to his experiences. As the novel progresses, Scout and Jem learn to appreciate the good in people and sympathize for the bad. To Kill a Mockingbird, is a Pulitzer-winning book-and why? It continues to be a classic because it not only displays to everyone the rational and compassionate side of human-nature, but teaches one to appreciate humans from all aspects. Given as a gift, assigned for a class, or bought, To Kill a Mockingbird is a piece of American history and should be read by anyone who enjoys literature at its finest.

I think we all get that "To Kill a Mockingbird" is not on here. I was also disappointed because my teacher wants us to have this book by Monday( a week from today) and I was hoping to buy it on here and be over with the stress of buying the book. But NO! B&N just had to not put it in ebook version. EVEN THOUGH IT IS A BOOK THAT IS READ BY STUDENTS ALL ACROSS THE COUNTRY! Enough said!

In reply to all the people complaining that To Kill A Mockingbird is not available as an ebook.... this is because Harper Lee herself has stated that she never wants her book to be available as an ebook. There's no use complaining that you're a "dissatisfied customer, make it an ebook immediately" lolol it's nothing to do with B&N, nook, kindle, amazon, etc. etc.

I love how the eStore offers 30 random things that are all ABOUT To Kill A Mockingbird but not the ACTUALLY book. Kinda sad actually... Plus - To Kill A Mockingbird is a classic that has sold millions of copies and we read it in English class!
