June 1st through August 31stCOMPLETED this challenge on August 18, 2007
Thank you, Maggie for a great challenge!
Maggie over at Maggie Reads is sponsoring the Southern Reading Challenge 2007 and it sounds like a lot of fun. The goal is to read three books set in the South and written by a Southern author. She’s even supplied a map to help participants determine what States are acceptable for the challenge!.
I can’t resist this one! I’ve found three books on my stacks that I think meet the criteria:
1. The Evening Star, by Larry McMurtry (Completed June 30, 2007; read a review here.)
2. Bastard Out of Carolina, by Dorothy Allison (Completed August 1, 2007; read a review here.)
3. No Country For Old Men, by Cormac McCarthy (Completed July 20, 2007; read a review here.)
The Mermaid Chair, by Sue Monk Kidd
Of course, I can change my mind before June 1st, right?!??
