The Road to Little Dribbling
The Road to Little Dribbling by Bill Bryson (2 Winter Readers liked this book)
"recommend. not as enjoyable as most of his other books. this seems less a travel type book and more a platform to complain about "how things used to be. generally, his books seem to have a more humorous tone and as such are witty and informative at the same time. a general complaint is that not all of england's problems are the result of political conservatives in england(the tories) or the republicans(in the u s.)and the sly put downs as such do get tiring. " -- Edger, 02/13/2016

"I loved this book. Bryson at his best and a tour of Great Britain. Wonderful!" -- Grier, 02/05/2016

To Kill a Mockingbird (Enhanced Edition)
To Kill a Mockingbird (Enhanced Edition) by Harper Lee (2 Winter Readers liked this book)
"I read the 50th aniversary edition, the first edition having been published in 1960 at the beginning of the civil rights movement. It's no wonder this novel is considered by many to #1 on a list of best books of the 20th Century. The characters and plot are beautifully crafted. We care a great deal for the characters and the dramatic story is captivating, written with exquisite style. This is truly a work of perfection, well worth reading again and again." -- Noni, 02/01/2016

"So well written. It brings back many childhood memories." -- attakquak, 01/25/2016
