Review: As Southern As It Gets by:H. Jackson Brown,Jr.

 As Southern as It Gets: 1,071 Reasons to Never Leave the South
About the Book:
Life Is Sweet in the South

Full of small towns and sparkling cities, this welcoming area invites all who visit to put your feet up, have a glass of ice tea in a mason jar and reminisce on some of the most wonderful things in the South. Written by true Southern gentleman H. Jackson Brown Jr., As Southern As It Gets is a charming book of lists--a celebration of all things Southern that will charm and delight anyone who was raised south of the Mason-Dixon or who wish they lived there.

Recall the tastes, sounds, and beauty of Southern treasures such as:

Juicy Georgia peaches in July

Glorious changing leaves on the Natchez Trace

A steaming cup of gumbo from New Orleans

The smooth, soulful voice of Patsy Cline

From Music Row in Nashville, to Daytona Beach in Florida, and Charleston to New Orleans, As Southern As It Gets will remind you of why we Southerns so love our home.

 
My Review:
 As Southern As It Gets, is a sweet little do nothing book, as I like to call them. This book is a fun little book to have on a coffee table or even in the bathroom to read upon waiting, if you will. Southerners are a unique crowd, they to me seem to have it all figured out and they did it on their own. They are a people that make due with what they have been given or the cards that they have been dealt. They are masters at creativity. They can do a million and one things with a biscuit. They are amazing people and we can be taught a lot from them and the things they do in their daily lives.

 As Southern As It Gets, is a book full of little things related to the south whether its chicken and dumplings, sweet tea or college football--this book has it all. It was a lot of fun to read and look through. And many times it made me laugh. A good coffee table book for guests this book will really get you thinking.
