A New Challenge--Southern Reading
I’ve been reading about all the bloggers doing the Southern Reading Challenge hosted by Maggie Reads, and which runs from June 1st through August 30th.
My mother is a southern gal (now a western transplant) and I do love southern literature, so this one was attractive to me. But I didn’t want to commit to another challenge—mostly because I’m new to challenges and don’t want to get in over my head.
But then I thought, “It’s only three books…” And I’ve always wanted to read something by Lee Smith. So I jumped right in with both feet, and mooched Fair and Tender Ladies from BookMooch.
So my list for the Southern Reading Challenge is:
Fair and Tender Ladies (Ballantine Reader's Circle) by Lee Smith
Delta Wedding (A Harvest/Hbj Book) by Eudora Welty
The Moviegoer by Walker Percy
And I think I might just have to re-read To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. Just because.
