CHALLENGE: Southern Reading Challenge 2008 Wrapup

Goal: 3 books set in southern states, May 15 - August 15, 2008

The books I read:
Miss Julia Throws a Wedding by Ann B Ross (North Carolina)
Mudbound by Hillary Jordan (Mississippi)
Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd (South Carolina)
Mama Makes Up Her Mind by Bailey White (Georgia)
The Awakening by Kate Chopin (Louisiana)
A Lesson Before Dying by Ernest Gaines (Louisiana)

I had hope, but didn't get to:
Beach Music by Pat Conroy (South Carolina)
something by Mark Twain

I won the copy of Mudbound with my haiku from The Secret Life of Bees. Maggie had a couple other contests as well. Thanks for everything Maggie, it's been a blast.
