I got this for a BNU course on writing memoirs. I finished neither the book nor the course. Bad me!

REceived in a box from teacher57 (who used to be reader 1107, I think) for the Charleston BookCrossers. As we just had a meetup, I will let folks know the box has arrived and let them reserve what they want, on a FCFS basis.

Thank you so much!

Anything unclaimed will head out to one of our five OBCZs!

I was just packing this up to take to today's meetup when I noted that this was an Algonquin press book by a North Carolina Author. Southern writers are an interest of mine, so I shall take it out of the stack I am toting to the Meetup and transfer it, instead, to the stack on my shelf. My hunch is that from there it will end up in a goodie bag for the Charleston Convention.

Not quite as heartwarming as I had hoped, but it had moments of amusement and insight. I particularly liked the essay on The Quare Gene simply because dialects interest me so much.

Putting aside for the 2007 Convention, when this book will most likely find its way into a goodie bag.

Which it found its way into my goodie bag!

And out again. Now on its way to one of my very favorite BookCrossers, along with a little bit of Charleston.

Arrived today along with some grits! Not sure yet what to do with grits but I'm sure I know what to do with a book :)

Thanks Skyring and Bookczuk!

Picked up at tonight's meetup. How could I resist a book with such an illustrious bookcrossing history?

An interesting collection of essays, some better than others. Like Bookczuk, I particularly enjoyed "The Quare Gene", though I kept wishing I was listening to an audiobook instead of reading, because I want to know what all those words and phrases sound like. "Granny''s Bridge" was another favourite - I liked how in such a short essay he managed to convey so much of his grandmother''s life and spirit.

Journal Entry 13 by sleepycatgingy at Christchurch, Canterbury New Zealand on Tuesday, July 07, 2015
I liked the story about the cat and the story about where some words in his family were derived. I enjoyed the family background. My least enjoyed story was about ghosts, think I must have missed the point.
