I signed up for another challenge in October and for got to post it with the rest.

Hosted by Kathy at Bermudiaonion this is a fun one if you love Southern writing which I do. Here are the details:

To make this challenge fun for everyone, I’m going to include four different levels:

1-3 Books:  Goober
4-6 Books:   Tater
7-9 Books:  Peach
10-13 Books: Okra


The Okra Picks Challenge will run from October 1, 2010 through March 31, 2011.  To join this challenge, all you have to do is pick your level of participation (you can always go up levels, but not down.)  Then after you read any of the books,  write a review to share your thoughts with others!

Sign Up:

You can join this challenge at any time.  Just  grab the Okra Picks logo at the top of this page and write a post announcing your intention to participate in the challenge — remember you don’t need to pick the specific books, just your level. Once you have posted your Okra Picks challenge post, come back to this post and click on Mr. Linky. Please leave your name and link directly to your introductory post (not just to your blog’s home page.) If you don’t have a blog, no worries — you can just leave a comment on this post telling me you want to participate.

In the next few days I will add an Okra Picks Challenge tab to the top of my blog. When you click on the tab, you will see a list of all the participants as well as a place to link your reviews.

I haven’t worked out all of the details yet, but I promise that there will be some prizes. I do know that your chances of winning will increase with each review you write. In other words, your name will be thrown in the hat each time you post a review.
