African Diaspora Reading Challenge
South Asian Author Challenge
Social Justice Challenge
Black Classics Challenge
There's actually a seventh, but it's a perpetual challenge...Reading Africa.
I'll also be doing more vlogs. They'll mostly focus on indie bookstores. Speaking of indie bookstores, I have resolved to patronize them more, though they're scarce in my hometown. So, we got more reading, more vlogs and a new feature. I hope my reviews improve and I write more thought provoking posts on the book industry especially as it pertains to POC writers and literature. My most epic plan is to attend what is, for me, the mecca of book fairs- the Harlem Book Fair.
And one final word, I planned to host a challenge with an awesome theme (hint: Harlem Renaissance) for Black History month. It was all mapped out months before the year long challenge I tossed in the ring on the fly. I'm still debating whether to save it and make it a year long challenge for 2011 or go ahead with it for February 2010. Lemme know what you think.
