I've lived in Florida since 1991, so I consider myself a Southerner. We are a transient state, so for Florida, 18 years makes me an old-timer. When I saw this challenge, the Southern Reading Challenge, I knew that I must sign up. You are only required to read three books between May 15 and August 15, so this is a very achievable goal. (Thanks Iliana, I have you to thank for this!). If you would like to join me in a challenge that is really just a stroll around the gardens with a mint julep in hand, see the official website here.
I have quickly and impulsively decided what my three books will be:
Before Women Had Wings - Connie May Fowler: This is already on my TBR Reading Challenge, but I am having a "thing" for this author and she is the epitome of the south.
The Help - Kathryn Stockett: Good reviews everywhere on this one. It was on my list anyway, why not to reward myself?
To Kill a Mockingbird - Harper Lee: This is embarrassing really. No I haven't read it! I've always been intrigued with Harper Lee's relationship with Capote, so I am going to use this challenge to just get it done.
