Inspired by @xicanti I reorganized this case to hold all my unread print titles (which don‘t include 2 of the bottom cubes). Total of 96. I‘m too slow a reader to get through all of them in any given year but I will commit to reading 12 for 2022…1 a month seems reasonable. Next step is to weed titles that I know I won‘t read.

xicanti It looks great! Good luck! 3w

This was a big ass book and a bit outdated but still essential reading for anyone interested or curious about institutional racism and/or reproductive rights. The research is extensive and at times I needed to take a break because it got to be too heavy. #Blitsy #BlackLitsy #ReadDiverseBooks #BIPOCbooks

Mehso-so

I really wanted to love this book because it‘s rare that I come across a Black Filipina main character that reflects me and heritage. There were some elements that I like…particularly how both cultures showed up in her work but it felt off and a bit forced. I think the narration did little to help as some of the Tagalog words were mispronounced. #blitsy #readdiversebooks

Chelleo @Nute — The owner had plans to open up a very different type of space (membership literary/libraryesque co-working space). It kept hitting snags and the concept was change to a bookstore. “It represents the point in a sentence where it could stop, but the author decides to proceed”. 5mo

leah152 What's this about litsy penpals? Not that I need any more but my antenna's gone up lol! 😊 9mo
Chelleo @leah152 LOL! Awhile back someone, I‘d have to dig through the hashtag, coordinated a Litsy Pen Pal matching. I think there was a general form and they matched you with someone. After that, pairs worked out how frequently they wanted to communicate and what, if at all, type of gift giving scenarios they‘d do. We exchange birthday and Christmas treats (sometime all rolled into one). Otherwise we send cards/letters. 9mo
Chelleo @leah152 Every so often another matching pops up so keep an eye out, usually you can find them via #LitsyHappenings or @LitsyHappenings 9mo

It‘s #BlitsySwap opening day!! Please post a pic and tag your match.

I hope you enjoy your new goodies. Today is the last official day of Black History Month but hopefully this swap will help us remember that Black people, history and culture should be acknowledged and celebrated every day of the year.

There are a few packages that may still be in transit. Please post your pic upon arrival.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️🎧2020-02-26 — A super short but fully developed story of a girl trying to find a place to fit in and belong. The first in a series. Love the cover art and narration. #Blitsy #BlackLitsy #ReadDiverseBooks

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️🎧2020.02.26 — Wow! What a great ride. It‘s a BAB but worth the 18 hours of narration. It‘s a new take on the tale of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table with a twist of Root/Blood Magic woven in. I‘m not well versed in King Arthur‘s story but this book makes me want to check into it. Can‘t wait for the next book! #Blitsy #BlackLitsy #ReadDiverseBooks

Charityann Love the artwork! This is on my TBR list.😊 11mo
Librariana A BAB? Could you kindly explain? I'm afraid I've not heard what the acronym/abbreviation/term could mean, so please pardon my ignorance 😔 Thanks in advance! 💜📚 11mo
julesG I'm bumping it up to the top of #MountTBR 11mo

I lucked up with a great follow-up read to Amari and the Night Brothers. Another fantasy with a Black female protagonist...a bit older (college aged), darker and heavier but a really good book so far (7 of 18 hours in!). #BlackLitsy #Blitsy #ReadDiverseBooks

Zoes_Human This is so good! The narrator for the audio is one of the best too. 11mo
Copwithabook @Zoes_Human thanks for the comment about the audio! I‘ll try listening to this one 11mo
Zoes_Human @Copwithabook You're welcome. If you enjoy the narrator's style, you might also try “Raybearer“ by Jordan Ifueko on audiobook. It's the same narrator, and I enjoyed it as much as this. 11mo
