Jen of The Introverted Reader is hosting the Southern Literature Challenge. She writes:
I am proud of my Southern heritage, troubled and imperfect as it may be, and I love to read books set in my region. It sometimes feels like we are a little under-represented in the publishing world, so I would love to encourage any of you who haven't read any Southern lit to give it a try! And, of course, if you're already a fan, I would love to see what you're reading so that I can add to my ever-growing to-read list! So here is my Southern lit challenge!
Read a book(s)--non-fiction or fiction of any genre, adult or young adult--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? :-)
Florida--as long as you find a book by a Florida author and/or set in Florida that feels Southern.
Level 1--C'mon in the house! Read 1 book.
Level 2--Pull up a seat and stay a while! Read 2 books
Level 3--Have a glass of sweet iced tea, honey. Read 3 books
Level 4--Y'all come back now, y'hear! Read 4 books
