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 1-2 books.
Level 2--Pull up a seat and stay a while! Read 3-4 books
Level 3--Have a glass of sweet iced tea, honey. Read 5-6 books
Level 4--Y'all come back now, y'hear! Read 7-8 books
The challenge will run from January 1, 2015 to December 31, 2015. You can join in anytime throughout the year.
Bearing in mind that I'm trying to have a less stressful reading year this year I am aiming at Level 2 which is to read 3 or 4 books. I'm not going to create a reading list but I really do want to read To Kill A Mockingbird this year. Plus I have several other books on the tbr mountain. Looking forward to this one immensely.
