I know what you’re thinking.
Another challenge? Seriously?
But when I read the description of the challenge at The Introverted Reader, I just couldn’t help it, because some of my favorite books (Gone with the Wind, Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe) are Southern, and I teach or have taught others (Their Eyes Were Watching God, The Secret Life of Bees, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn), but there’s so much I haven’t read. Plus one of my choices is an overlap with another challenge, which makes it totally do-able. Right?
So here’s my list:
So that brings me to four challenges for 2011 (so far). I’ve also added a Challenges page, so that you (and I) can keep up with what I’ve read so far, and what I thought of it.
