Mini-Challenge #1

Lunch break and time to take the first mini-challenge.  I am reading The Secret Life of Bees.  I came across this book as part of another project I'm doing - being a Mary Jane Farm Girl.  To earn my beginning badge under Garden Gates I needed to learn a little about bees and their importance, grow some bee-friendly flowers, and read the novel that I'm working on today!

The book takes place in the 1960's and is set in South Carolina.  This is a part of the US that I can't wait to visit so I know that has intrigued me as I read.  I can't imagine being part of the days when it was black vs. white - the story is about a young white girl who is raised by a mean father after her mother's accidental death.   I'm just into the first few chapters - but I love it!

  1. Good job combining readathon and Farmgirl badge! I've heard great things about this book - and the movie - but haven't read it. Can't wait to hear your reiew.
