Diversity on the Shelf Reading Challenge 2015


My Little Pocketbooks is hosting the Diversity on the Shelf Reading Challenge 2015. The idea is to read more books by authors of color, or read books with a main character of color. I’m signing up for 1st Shelf: Read 1-6 Books. This is my first year doing this challenge and I’m looking forward to it! I’ll be updating this post with my progress throughout the year. Read below for an outline of the rules, and click the banner at the top of this post to sign up. Let me know in the comments below if you’re doing this challenge!
