Titles and covers

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee.
There are books that the title doesn't attract you, and because of that you don't read them. Other books you feel the desire of reading them because of the cover. Those two are reasons that are partly true in my case, I realize now, after I've read To Kill a Mockingbird.
Words like 'chillun' (for children) ans 'suh' (for sir) really transport you to the Alabama world of the 1930's.
