Book Report Due June 15!


First review time and Jill and Scrap Girl are ready!
To help with the conversation try to do a specific url on Mister Linky.
What?!?
Chill, it is real easy to do. Click the title of the post and a unique web address will appear in the www area. Copy and paste the address into Mister Linky and Timbo is your uncle! On June 15, I will choose a random number for pecans! Good Luck! Oh, and please visit the other reviewers. ;)

I tossed in an extra book - I know I can't limit myself to just the 3 books I had listed!

maggie moran said...

That's perfectly okay, Lynne; especially, after the dud you slogged through! Two chances to win, yahoo! :D

Tiffany Norris said...

Ah! Due date! Just kidding. ;) We can handle it.

I'm not paying attention to due dates or rules! I tossed in an extra book too! Will probably do the same on Second Review. But I'll be good on the Third Review.

Thanks for sorting Maggie. I am loving this challenge.

maggie moran said...

Does thismean I will charge those who don't make the due date 10 cents, Tiffany! Might offset the cost of pecans! :D

Rebel yell, Ellsworth! Thaks for clearing up the 2 blogs thingy! ;)

I was dragging my feet - slogging through - pussyfooten it - trudging to the computer. Can you tell I just read a book on walking?!? ;D

Sharon said...

I'm done with my first one and it was really good! Glad I made the due date! :)

maggie moran said...

Just teasing w/ the due date. I did that so I would have a cutoff for the drawing. BTW, I love The Help!

wineandroasts said...

First time visitor to your blog - but I'll be back!

LOVE IT!

maggie moran said...

Yay! I love Katherine, too!

gautami tripathy said...

I have read three books as of today but reviewed only two as of now. Hope that's ok !

I am enjoying this!

I read Sights Unseen by Kaye Gibbons. I liked it, but did not love it.

Mary (Bookfan) said...

I finished The Help tonight.

SuziQoregon said...

I'm including Warm Springs - although it's only sort of Southern because Warm Springs is in Georgia. Great memoir, though.

maggie moran said...

Gautami - Pace yourself gurl! Should I have a most Southern Books Read Contest? :D

I've not read this Gibbons, Stacy. I look forward to your thoughts! :)

Yippee! I'm so happy for those that read this book, Mary! I can't wait to read your review. :)

I loved Warm Springs and she spends quite a bit of time at the camp, Suzi. My second grade teacher had polio as a child, and wore the braces all her life. I remember hugging them on a day I felt vunerable. The amazing thing that I didn't realize at the time 73-74, she was also black. Can you imagine her struggle?!?

Enjoyed my first Welty!

maggie moran said...

Yay Diane!!!

tinylittlelibrarian said...

HOMINY GRILLLLLLLLLLLLLLL! Hooray! :) That was one of the culinary highlights of our trip to Charleston last year. :)

Bets said...

Loved The Notebook,although it wasn't as "Southern" as I usually like. e.g. Cold Sassy Tree, Prodigal Summer...2 of my favorites

Stella said...

I wanna' read another Crews :) But I guess I'll just have to wait. On to the next title...

Louise said...

I am excited! Haven't finished my first challenge book though (The Ponder Heart by Eudora Welty) but am looking forward to write my review and post it here. And read as many of the other reviews as possible. I am afraid my wish list will grow out of control ;o) I got all the books I want now for the challenge, now we'll see if I can manage to read them all.

maggie moran said...

You get a gold star Tiny Little Libraian! So kewl!!! :)

Best of luck w/ the next read Bets!

Maybe, next year Stella! :)

Ew, I can't wait to hear your opinion on The Ponder Heart. Is there a bottle tree in this story? :)

Missy B. said...

Hmmm, I hope I posted my link correctly! This was actually my second book finished for the challenge...

maggie moran said...

Looks good Missy! Save the first review for the second review post! HUH?!? :D

Amy said...

OK--I finished book one, The Help.

Louise said...

Happy to say that I finished my reading of The Ponder Heart and wrote my review...

maggie moran said...

Yay Amy! W2G! 1 down and 2 to go! :)

Yahoo, Louise! I skirt over to read it later. You know,see what you think! :)

Tiffany Norris said...

I may be sliding in on this one, but I'll get it by tonight! And I already have an overdue fine on the book, so no late charges, please! ha (I know--I'm a bad librarian.)

Wanda said...

Though I actually finished My Last Days as Roy Rogers weekend before last, I just got my review up today. Gotta love deadlines! ;)

Nancy said...

Oops! Didn't post by the 15th, but like some others participating, I read Kathryn Stockett's novel The Help. For my comments on the book (and on this challenge) go to my blog site, Discriminatingreader.com.

Now on to the next one!

sage said...

I'm so late with my first review... and it wasn't one that I set out to read, but since I was able to find a copy of it, decided to read and review
