~Southern Reading Challenge 2009~


It's that time of year! The time when you pour a glass of lemonade or sweet tea and take your official summer spot on the porch. Lean back in that chase lounge surrounded by geraniums and ferns, and begin the summer long journey into Southern culture.Yes, it's hot! Yes, it does get uncomfortable, but it is well worth the effort as you discover our unique "Southern" point of view.You may choose to read any style of Southern book such as Appalachian tales, Civil War sagas, Gothic myths, Grit lit, and heart-wrenching biographies. Click here for ideas. Just as long as you read three (fiction or nonfiction) between May 15th and August 15th.


The Southern Reading Challenge is being hosted by Maggie Reads. Visit her page to add your name to the list of participants. It's gonna be FUN!


Here are the books that I have chosen:

Good choices :)

Hm, maybe I should participate, but dunno what I would read

That would be nice of you could give me some suggestions :)
And let's hope I find them.
But the thing is, I did get one southern book in the mail today :) At least I have one

I had a great time with this challenge last year and I'm looking forward to joining in again this year. Can't wait to see what you think of the books you've chosen. I've never heard of them!
