This mini-challenge is hosted by Jen at Book Crazy. The assignment was to pair one of our favorite books with either a song or a photograph. I like music, but am really bad at remembering song names, who sings it, etc. I am totally into photography so thought I'd pick one of my own photographs and pair it with a book that I've loved.
Animal Dreams by Barbara Kingsolver has always been one of my favorite books. I like that it's about a teacher who goes back home to take care of her dad. She finds love in an unexpected person, grows to love the small Arizona town she grew up in and the Mexican-influenced culture of the locals.
I took this photo outside Tuscon, Arizona and it makes me think of the small town in Animal Dreams.
