    What a vacuous world we live in 9th Feb 18 at 8:27 AM
    Was unable to sleep last night and brain was in overdrive. Ended up thinking about the book To Kill a Mockingbird and for the life of me, I could not remember who wrote it. I was having a battle with myself about it being Harper Lee, so got my phone out to check. Silly me thought all I needed to do was type in Harper and it would be the first thing to appear on the list.

    What is the world coming to when a child, who happens to be the offspring of a couple who seem to be always in the press because of a new tattoo or self promotion, comes before the author of one of the best books ever written?

    I would have thought a Pern reference might have come before Ms Lee - given that she was notoriously publicity shy. However, there are probably far more references to Little Miss Beckham because of the endless recycling of paparazzi photos and (not really) stories.

    See here is me thinking that Harper Lee was a publisher and not an author. Oh well I fear I have mixed that up with HarperCollins.
    On the good side though I didn't even know there who harper beckham was but I have read all of the pern series, well infact I have read everything that Anne McCaffrey has written I think.

    Until I just checked on Google, for some reason I always thought that Harper Lee was a 'he' and not a 'she'!
