Harper Lee, who only wrote one book, the great To Kill a Mockingbird, has finally consented for the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel to be turned into an eBook. It only took 54* years, but who's counting?
Lee announced in a press release through her publisher, HarperCollins, that she was ready to let kids with those spangly devices learn the beauty of her singular contribution. But she's still a Luddite.
"I'm still old-fashioned. I love dusty old books and libraries. I am amazed and humbled that Mockingbird has survived this long. This is Mockingbird for a new generation."
The first eBook, if you've never read it and don't really go for paper and twine, will be available digitally on July 8.
