  3. I vote for Secret Life of Bees. I loved it last year.

  4. sprite - I bought that book after reading a White book for last year's challenge, so yeah! for a good rec already.

    maggie - I wouldn't miss it for the world. I was looking forward to this one. thanks!

    3M - I really hope to get to Secret Life of Bees because it fits another challenge for me too. (more something about me at 888)

  5. Bailey White's book was fun. The Secret Life of Bees didn't quite work for me. Enjoy the Southern Reading Challenge, y'all, y'hear?

  6. Looks like a fun list. The Secret Life of Bee's is a wonderful book. One that my sister's and I have passed around and around...
