The Amazing Read: Summer Reading Challenge, Week 3
I hope you liked last week's challenge to revisit a childhood favorite as much as I did. I dug out some of my old Classics Illustrated and gorged my way down memory lane: Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Frankenstein and The Hunchback of Notre Dame. (yeah, I was kind of a creepy kid).
This week, let's saddle up and read a book about Texas, by a Texas author or set in Texas. I encourage you to learn a bit more about the Lone Star State's singular history; enjoy one of our great tale-spinners like Larry McMurtry, Mary Willis Walker or Cormac McCarthy; swoon over a rugged Texas hero; or--in the spirit of all great Texans--strike out on your own and find something that fits you like a good pair a boots. Whatever you choose, let us know about it!
Myself, I figure since the 4th of July is coming and it would be positively unpatriotic not to fire up the barbecue, I'm going to read Follow the Smoke: 14,783 Miles of Great Texas Barbecue, Places, People, Secrets and Recipes by John DeMers.
Enjoy and don't forget to share what you're reading with us and all your fellow readers!
