Southern Reading Challenge

I've been trying to read more widely lately so joining up with the Southern Reading Challenge was only logical. My three books will be:

All the King's Men Robert Penn Warren
Our Southern Highlanders by Horace Kephart
The Confessions of Nat Turner by William Styron

Perhaps surprisingly considering what this blog is usually about I managed to avoid the American Civil War.

Naw, Really?!? Get out! Confederates in the Attic, Confederacy of Dunces, Widow of the South,etc.?!? I'm just so tickled! Thanks for participating and I hope you win some pecans. :)

Well I figured I should try to expand my horizons a bit. What does "Dunces" have to do with the Civil War?

Nothing! It just has Confederacy in the title! :D This is going to be fun, and I had no idea Elmore Leonard is Southern born. Thanks for the new lead.
