Southern Reading Challenge Three

Maggie's Southern Reading Challenge 3 kicks off this month.

"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...Just as long as you read three (fiction or nonfiction) between May 15th and August 15th."

Visit Maggie's blog for ideas/titles of books to read for the challenge.

My SRC list for this summer:

1. Blood and Grits by Harry Crews
2. The Sweet Potato Queens' Book of Love by Jill Conner Browne

I'm so happy for you! I love Harry Crews! He reminds me so of my own hell raising father! I look forward to more thoughts, Stella! :D
