I'm a little late to post this, but I am hosting the Southern Literature Reading Challenge again this year. Sign up and link your reviews below. The rules:
Read a book(s)--non-fiction or fiction of any genre, for any age group--written by an author from the South and set mostly in the South.
Definitions of the South are flexible, so I've decided to define it the way I want. That's the fun of hosting your own challenge, right? :-)
Please keep in mind that this is a Southern literature challenge. It's possible to find books set in each of these states that are not Southern in nature or feeling. Use your best judgment when choosing your books.
Level 1--C'mon in the house! Read 1 book.
Level 2--Pull up a seat and stay a while! Read 2 books
Level 3--Have a glass of sweet iced tea, honey. Read 3 books
Level 4--Y'all come back now, y'hear! Read 4 books
The challenge will run from January 1, 2013 to December 31, 2013. You can join in anytime throughout the year.
I am not limiting the challenge to bloggers. You can also link to a review you wrote on another site, such as GoodReads or LibraryThing.
Crossovers with other challenges are acceptable, and feel free to read your books in any format you choose.
I'm signing up at the Y'all Come Back Now level. I'll track my progress here.
