Harper Lee’s New Title Spiking Sales Of ‘To Kill A Mockingbird’

Following HarperCollins’s February 3 announcement that it will be publishing Harper Lee’s second novel, ‘Go Set a Watchman’, in July, sales for Lee’s landmark first book, To Kill a Mockingbird, nearly tripled.

‘Go Set a Watchman’ follows Scout Finch, the plucky young heroine of Mockingbird, 20 years later, as an adult. Following news of its publication this summer, pre-orders pushed the title to the top of Amazon’s chart, taking Mockingbird along with it.

  1. I loved To Kill a Mockingbird. I only hope that through all this, the author’s wishes are being followed, and there’s no exploitation involved. That would be way too tragic.
