***Oh man...I can't believe I blew it again this year. In fact, I did even worse than last year. Yikes!***

The challenge (put simply): Read 3 books both set in the South and written by Southern authors.
*A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole
*Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt (O.k., o.k., I know he's not from the South, but Maggie said I could use this book last year because the book gives such a good feel for Savannah, so I'm hoping she won't mind if I use it this year. I had it as a bonus read last year, but never got to it.)
*A Painted House by John Grisham (I didn't really want to read another John Grisham book for this year's challenge, but since I already owned it and since it sounds a bit different from others of his I've read, I decided it would have to do.)
*The Sugar Queen by Sarah Addison Allen
*Sonny's House of Spies by George Ella Lyon
