Sweet Potato Queens... say what?


This has been a long winter for me. I have now been on antibiotics 5 times since October and am really tired of being sick. No complaints from me on this blog so moving right along... I was at the library on Tuesday and a book fell right into my arms. No really it did, that is one of the benefits of being very short, things are always falling on you. The Sweet Potato Queens Book Of Love by Jill Conner Browne. Well now what can I say about this book....hummm I stopped reading my other book to read it and found myself laughing out loud and turning around and making sure no one was watching me laugh at the sometimes inappropriate jokes and comments. This book is helping chase the winter blues away. Now I am a Northern girl so all these southern images she conjures up really scare me a little, but what the heck it is a great little read. Some of the titles of her books crack me up! Check out the website!

Has anyone ever read these books before?

Maybe I shouldn't admit this, but my dream is to one day attend the Sweet Potato Queen St. Patrick's Day Parade. I LOVE her books!

And yeah, I live in the South. Some of those images that she paints are true. Be afraid. Be very afraid. Ha!

Jennifer, I just got to the part where she talks about the "Sweet Potato Magic Words", my jaw dropped and I had to look around to make sure no one was in the room with me. What a way funny ball of fire she must be! And I am very afraid! ;0)

Oh my god I LOVE The Sweet Potato Queens! We even have a local chapter here in Sacramento, and while none of us is from the South, we laugh and totally enjoy all being Tammies :)
