Here is my selection of three southern books:
1. To Kill A Mockingbird - Harper Lee
2. The Optimist's Daughter - Eudora Welty
3. The Mermaid Chair - Sue Monk Kidd
I figured it was about time I got around to reading To Kill A Mockingbird. It is long, long, long overdue! Eudora Welty's The Optimist's Daughter has been sitting on my bookshelf for one year now. I had decided to delve into her writings, and picked up this book at a used book store...and then never got around to reading it. Now's the time! The third book is more of a fluff read, and may change before the challenge starts. I will be going down to Hilton Head Island for a vacation in June, and was hoping to find a novel whose setting is Hilton Head Island (prior to all of the upscale development), or Savannah, Georgia. No luck however, in finding a book that I haven't already read.
