I always love seeing the OKRA picks (no resemblance to my lunch the other day. Well, maybe.) Great Southern books.
Now SIBA (Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance) has announced the finalists for their 2011 Award. I am so reading these books, as soon as I whittle my Must Read list down a bit. But I've already read a couple, and all of the YA Nominees. (There were only three, but still.)
Has anyone read Pete the Cat- a picture book my friend Patty loves? It's on the children's list.
Click here for the complete list.
Here's the Fiction (Includes two of my favs!):
Bloodroot by Amy Greene (Vintage Books)
Burning Bright by Ron Rash (Ecco Press)
Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter by Tom Franklin (William Morrow)
On Folly Beach by Karen White (New American Library)
Saving CeeCee Honeycutt by Beth Hoffman (Penguin)
