May 15 – August 15, 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.
Participants may choose to read any style of Southern book such as Appalachian tales, Civil War sagas, Gothic myths, Grit lit, etc… The goal is THREE BOOKS in three months. As she did last year, Maggie will be holding weekly drawings and contests.
I couldn’t resist this one because I have some terrific looking Southern novels on my shelf. I’ll read three from this list (subject to change):
Crazy Ladies by Michael Lee West
Sweetwater Creek by Anne Rivers Siddons
The Help by Kathryn Stockett
Eat, Drink, and Be From Mississippi by Nanci Kincaid
The Lost Hours by Karen White
Beach Trip by Cathy Holton (COMPLETED June 5, 2009; rated 4/5; read my review)
