Before you throw a tomato at me, and tell me that I am always whining about having too many challenges, hear me out.
Lately, you have been listening to a few of us go on and on about how wonderful the SIBA Trade Show was last week, how passionate this organization is about books, and how supportive they are of bloggers (we love Wanda!) Now is our chance to return some of that love. Each season, SIBA chooses a group of Southern books to handsell called the OKRA picks, and Kathy from Bermudaonion has decided to make a reading challenge of this fall's selections. The challenge lasts from October 1, 2010 through March 31, 2011, so you've got plenty of time to soak up all that southern goodness, and maybe even pick up a prize. (See Kathy's website for all the details.)
There are 13 books available to read for this challenge, and this past weekend I picked up four of them. So my goal will be to read all four, putting me at the "Tater" level. (If you want to read less, you can be a Goober. I love these level names. Kathy you crack me up!) Here are the books in my possession:
My Only Sunshine - Lou Dischler
Zora and Me - Victoria Bond and T.R. Simon
The Typist - Michael Knight
Carry the Rock - Jay Jennings
