I've never heard of her but the books look interesting. I'm in. I'll post about it now.

Can some of these be a re-read for you? I have read some of her works but it was many years ago. I would not mind re-reading a few.

Becky said...

Yes, Peace. They can be rereads. I haven't read any Zora lately--but in college I loved her. So I'm looking to reread some myself!

Just found your blog! I am enjoying reading your reviews. I'm def. going to do this challenge.

I loved Their Eyes Were Watching God! I think I'm going to do either Lies and Other Tall Tails or The Six Fools. I saw both of those at the library. Otherwise, perhaps her biography. At any rate, I think I would love to do this!

Juliette said...

I was excited to see this challenge and couldn't wait to be a part of it!!! I had heard of this author for many years, espcially when I was in college but failed to read one of her books. I just bought one at B&N the other day and I am aboard!!

Oh yeah, I'm anonymous but my name is Delores.....so count me in for the challenge. My user name is deldiva7. I don't have a blog but want to be identified. If someone can let me know how I can do that without having a blog, I will highly appreciate it.

I'm really pleased that blogger now uses "Open ID" which recognizes uses from many other sites. If you don't have a user ID with livejournal, wordpress, typepad or AIM, you can still use Open ID and just type in your name in that box. Or use the Name/URL function and leave the URL blank.
