Maggie (Maggie Reads) has just announced her 2008 Southern Reading Challenge. That means that SUMMER is almost here! Hooray! Her challenge last summer was a highlight of the year for me — the books I read were some of my favorites of the entire year. So I’m delighted that she’s hosting it again, and I’m ready to go!
The rules are easy: 3 Southern Setting Books by Southern Authors in 3 Months beginning May 15 through August 15!
Watermelon King, by Daniel Wallace
Ballad of the Sad Cafe, by Carson McCullers
The Robber Bridegroom, by Eudora Welty
Remembering, by Wendell Berry
