In the Blog Improvement Project it has been Blog Post Bingo for some weeks now - read the full post and the Bingo-list here - a project which ends in two days. I am determined to do as many of the suggested posts as possible, and this is # 3: A list post.
Since I wanted to combine this list with my the Southern Reading Challenge, I have found a list called 125 best Southern Books. You can check out the list here. I don't know who compiled the list or who determined which books made the list or not. And I am not going to publish the full list here.
My list contains the books from the list mentioned above which I have read or have on my TBR.
The Color Purple by Alice Walker (did not read yet)
Absalom, Absalom! by William Faulkner (did not read yet)
Black Boy by Richard Wright (did not read yet)
Prince of Tides by Pat Conroy (read)
Ellen Foster by Kaye Gibbons (read) See review here.

Did you read any of the books I read? And if you check the full list, how many, if any, did you read from the list. Is there any book with a Southern theme that you think is missing from the list? I would love links to your reviews of Southern lit by the way! I see that I haven't included anything by authors such as Flannery O'Connor, and I never read Gone With the Wind either. Plus there is an awful lot of William Faulkner, which sounds tempting....oh well, so many books, so little time ;o)
