📚 I had some good book mail this week! I used some gift cards, got my next book club book, and got the most perfect chihuahua reading stamp from a friend!
✊🏽 In light of the disgusting terrorist attack on our Capitol this week, I am reminded by BIPOC Instagram friends that “the books are not enough.” I promise I know this and I am continuing my work on being anti racist.

#BlackoutBestsellerList #BlackPublishingPower #AmplifyBlackVoices

I love this idea! To help try to get more black voices on the bestseller lists, I plan to buy 2 books a day all week. Today‘s purchases were two books I‘ve heard many wonderful things about: “Parable of the Sower” by Octavia E. Butler and “The Nickel Boys” by Colson Whitehead. 🖤🖤

megnews I‘m looking for my choices now. Trying to find a black owned shop that sells both I‘m looking for. 2y
