Read-a-Thon Hour 3 Mini Challenge

Bobbie at Til We Read Again has come up with a wonderful mini-challenge.  She wants to know what our favorites are.

Favorite Female Character in a book:  Minny (The Help) because she is a sassy black maid in the South who reminds me of my dad...who is neither black nor a maid nor from the South.

Favorite Male Character in a book:  This was the hardest one for me to figure out, but I think I will have to go with Father Emilio Sandoz (The Sparrow)

Favorite Couple in a Book:  Henry and Clare (The Time Traveler's Wife)

Favorite Book Series:  Don't have one

Hellooooo from down under or perhaps in your case I'm thinking maybe we're a bit off to the left...geography was never my strong point....anyway - I thought The Help was great too...and we had our best bookclub last month discussing it!

softdrink-I know! Isn't it perfect!

Luvvie-Down under and to the left is exactly right. I'm jealous of your book club discussion! Ours was...OK. It did bring up an interesting perspective though, given the make-up of the group-three white girls in their 30s and a mixed-race gentleman in his 60s who grew up in the South.
