[Reading Challenge] Diversity on the Shelf Sign Up

My Little Pocketbooks

I told myself that I was taking part in this next time, and guess what NEXT TIME IS HERE.

I'm super excited to take part in this challenge, because as a POC, I don't think I read enough books either featuring or by POC. And I'm not okay with that.

So what's this all about?


 Welcome to the 2nd year of the Diversity on the Shelf reading challenge. The aim of Diversity on the Shelf 2015 Challenge is add diversity to you bookshelf by reading books by authors of color and/or about a main character of color.
Challenge Details
1. Any book (by any author) with a main character that is a person of color qualifies for this reading challenge, as well as any book written by an author of color. The goal is to encourage readers have a more diverse reading experience and to support diversity in the publishing industry by reading and reviewing books by or about person of color. 
2. The challenge will run from January 1, 2015 – December 31, 2015 (books read prior to 1/1/2015 do not count towards the challenge). You can join anytime before 12/1/2015. Sign up at My Little Pocketbooks. < 3. Books can be any format (print, ebook, audio).

4th Shelf: Read 19 -24 books

Once you pick a level you can go higher and read more books but you cannot go down a level.

I choose 2nd Shelf and I hope to read at least 10 books.
