#junetbr not the best for filling tbrs. The ones with red X‘s were all library books that I probably won‘t be getting to any time soon. Will probably read If I‘m being honest next month. The 3 books I did read this month were pretty good. ❤️

Pickpick

Reading this book on Juneteenth feels very appropriate. I could quote from it all day, but here is one I made a bookmark of in my audiobook. “My race is unremarkable. I belong, when I turn on the tv, read bestselling novels, and watch blockbuster movies. I belong, when I walk past the magazines racks at the grocery store or drive past billboards. I belong...” #howjessreadsin2019 #juneteenth #whitefragility

Ashley_Nicoletto Oh man. This quote makes me want to read it more. 1mo
Samplergal I started it yesterday. So. Good. 1mo

Come Juneteenth | Ann Rinaldi
Panpan

This book was HORRIBLE! It started out pretty bad, but I kept reading thinking/hoping that it would get better better. But sadly it did not. Every other book that I have read that was written by Ann Rinaldi was GREAT, I guess I was just a little disappointed.

Just_reading This was on my to-read list. I usually love Ann Rinaldi too but I guess even the best authors are allowed some fails! 5mo
lover.of.the.classics @Just_reading It is well written, it‘s not sluggish or boring, but the story is very, very sad. I mean in the end she ends up accidentally killing her best friend, who is also her brothers lover. 5mo

#juneteenth. June 19, 1865 Freedom Day. Today I celebrate Freedom Day and those that came before me and those that fight with me for equality.

Happy #Juneteenth! If you're unfamiliar with the tradition, Juneteenth is a celebration that commemorates the official legal end of slavery on June 19, 1865. ✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿

No better way to celebrate than with a novel about it by the amazing Ralph Ellison. Has anyone read this?

vivastory I wasn't aware of this! Will remedy quickly, "Invisible Man" is a favorite. 2y
BooksForEmpathy Oooh thanks for sharing! Happy Juneteenth! 2y
RanaElizabeth Yay for Juneteenth! My old library back in Portland did a huge celebration for today which is when I first learned about it. 2y
