I’ve decided to sign up for another reading challenge. Kathy of Bermudaonion’s Weblog is hosting the Okra Picks Challenge.
Kathy attended the recent Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance trade show and explains: “Each season, SIBA selects a dozen Southern books to handsell and those books are called Okra Picks. Okra Picks authors are given a sash to wear at the trade show, and believe me when I tell you those sashes are worn with pride!”
You can click here to get the challenge details and the list of Okra Picks.
I’ll aim for the Goober level (1-3 books) and will list the books here:
1. The Perfect Love Song: A Holiday Story by Patti Callahan Henry
2. Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter: A Novel by Tom Franklin
Challenge runs from Oct.1, 2010 to March 31, 2011
