I'm in! Maggie at Maggie Reads has launched a summer reading challenge, the Southern Reading Challenge 2007, which involves reading three Southern books, by Southern authors, in Southern settings (Southern United States, that is, but that's still a pretty broad scope). The challenge runs from June 1 - August 31.
Well, here I go again. I have several challenges already in progress, but I think most can be accomplished by reading 1 book per challenge per month. So what's one more teeny, weeny challenge? As long as I don't have more than about 4 going concurrently, I should be fine ... just fine ... (juicy rationalization as she realizes she cannot resist!)
I found this list of professor's recommendations, from Lisa at Books. Lists. Life., useful in making my selections.
