In 2020, I read for hours and hours each week. I read magazines (thanks to my $2 blue dolphin subscriptions, best thing EVA) I read almost 30 novels via paper books and audiobooks. I read countless articles and blogs online. I also became a blogger lol.
2021 – I forgot what reading was all over again. I’ve reach about 4 books all year. (what happened?) Live got busy again, and I was out in the streets! Shopping, eating, and drinking. Unfortunately, I left behind my favorite past time, sinking into the couch with a good book. Now, I’m committed to reading again. Not just reading, but reading books by people of color. Books that tell stories of women and families that look like me and go through my type of struggles. Our book club’s mission – to build community and promote books written by people of color, promote self-love and engage in deeper conversations about literature. Check out our book list for reading inspiration! 📚📚📚
