Book Meme 11 and 12

11. Secondhand bookshop gem.

Discovered on a trip to Hay-on-Wye in about 2000, 'The Rabbit and the Hare' by Barbara Purchase; a little compendium of folklore, mythology and poetry about rabbits and hares.
It's a gorgeous book and was the main inspiration for the moongazing hare pictures which became such a large part of dapplegrey art a few years later.


12. I pretended to have read it.

To Kill a Mockingbird.

This was the curriculum book when I was doing my final exams at school, and I hated it from the get-go, just couldn't get into it!  So I skimmed what bits I could, and hoped that it was enough to blag my way through the English Lit exam.  I passed with a low grade, and was undoubtedly  saved by the Shakespeare element of the paper!
