My trip through the South last month left me nostalgic and wanting to read some Southern literature so when I stumbled across Maggie’s Southern Reading Challenge 2007 I signed up immediately. I wanted a summer reading challenge and this one sounds great.
When I think of Southern authors the following names come to mind: Flannery O’Connor, Eudora Welty and Harper Lee. They are all wonderful authors and To Kill A Mockingbird, A Good Man is Hard to Find, and The Optimist’s Daughter will top my reading list. I want to throw in Christy because it takes place in the Tennessee Smoky Mountains, not too far from where DD moved to. I’ve added a few other books that I’ve wanted to read for a while although I think the summer may be over before I get to them.
