  • Started a new book today! I’ve been meaning to get around to the #ReadWhatYouOwn challenge for this month, but I have so many library books to get through 😩 Have any of you read this? —————————————————— The Onion’s Baratunde Thurston shares his 30-plus years of expertise in being black, with helpful essays like “How to Be the Black Friend,” “How to Speak for All Black People,” “How To Celebrate Black History Month,” and more, in this satirical guide to race issues—written for black people and those who love them. Audacious, cunning, and razor-sharp, How to Be Black exposes the mass-media’s insidiously racist, monochromatic portrayal of black culture’s richness and variety. Fans of Stuff White People Like, This Week in Blackness, and Ending Racism in About an Hour will be captivated, uplifted, incensed, and inspired by this hilarious and powerful attack on America’s blacklisting of black culture: Baratunde Thurston’s How to Be Black.

  • I love a great book deal. I was able to snag this for $4 over the summer while in K-mart since they’re going out of business. There were endless amounts of books for less than $5 and I had to control myself because I wanted to get so many. Instead I got just this one. — What’s on your fall TBR list? And how are you feeling about summer coming to end? I’m a little torn, but I’m also excited for things like pumpkin spice lattes and going apple picking.

  • So we finally reached our destination. We have moved to Sunny San Diego (even though it rained twice while here.) Ive only managed to be get in a little reading time each day. I dont know about you but reading and riding makes me want to throw up. So while I probably put in about 48 hours in the car beside hubby, absolutely zero of those hours were reading. Ill have to play big time catch up in November and December to reach my book goals! Anyone else find it hard to read and ride?

  • I Like Myself isn’t just a book it’s an anthem! Its funny examples and wacky drawings are sure to result in giggles but its message will stay with you long after the giggles have subsided. . . . I’ve been reading this book since my oldest was a little girl (she’s a freshman in high school now) and read it regularly to my littlest. Each time we read it we can’t help but read with excitement declaring the love that we have for ourselves — uniquely and wonderfully made. Its message is one that I hope becomes a part of who she is and that she believes the words as she reads them. . . . There is more to us than what people see and whether they realize it or not, all the parts of us, from the outside in, are marvelous (yes, marvelous darling!) and special. They each come together to make us who we are. . . . What I think I love most about this book is that it gives us permission to celebrate ourselves. I don’t necessarily think that we need it but, how many of us struggle to toot our own horns from time to time? We don’t have to wait for someone to say we are smart or funny, a great writer or (insert super awesome quality you possess here) — all of the things we look to the world to tell us (you’ve got it goin on by the way!). We can speak loving positive affirmations into our own lives and teach our children to do the same. The greatest perception of who we are is the one WE have! The most important part of who we are is who we are on the inside. All together now: I like myself!💁🏾‍♀️ . . . . We recently purchased several copies of this book for our @littlefreelibrary and it’s a book I’ll reach for again and again. My hope is that every child who looks in the mirror loves the person that stares back at them. Every grownup too. As someone who struggled with self esteem through adulthood I am especially grateful for books that promote self love and pride. I think when we truly love ourselves we can do a better job of going out into the world and loving others well.💗✨| I Like Myself by Karen Beaumont Illustrated by David Catrow #ilikemyself

  • Reading is a conversation. All books talk. But a good book listens as well. -- Mark Haddon. . . From the Sunday reading. . . 'The Friends' centers on life of two teenage schoolmates in the 1970s: Phyllisia Cathy, an educated, 14 year old, West Indian immigrant, and Edith Jackson, a poor, 15 year old, street-smart African-American born and reared in volatile Harlem. Together, they shared intimate vulnerabilities of the good, the bad and the ugly of their lives, which brought them closer together as they recognized their soul connections through their human imperfections, their journey, dotted with trials and tribulations. . . The book appears from the plot to be a quick, non-heavy, entertaining piece of young adult fiction, but  there are lots of layers of life as you skim though the pages, plenty of unfeigned material to think about, especially in the relationships between characters. It will really make you think about what type of relationships you have, the type of relationship you hope, and the type of relationships you accept. Rosa Guy has niftily addressed subjects that had remained largely unexplored in fiction for young adults. The themes to which she returned repeatedly in the plot included race, class, poverty, sexuality and simmering tensions in the lives of American blacks and Afro-Caribbean immigrants newly arrived in the United States. . . It's a short book of 190 pages and the flow is retained if you can complete it in one sitting. It really tugs at the heart strings and you can feel the on-key connection. A powerful, award-winning novel about friendship.  Give it a try. . . #thefriends #rosaguy #storybooks #everydaylife #maxginsburg #reading #readingislife #life #youarewhatyouread #belief #friendshipismagic #relatable #mahattan #life_in_america #1970s #immigrantchildren #dream #support #hope #wellreadblackgirl #wellreadblackgirl #colors #khushraho

  • Happy Monday!🤗 I (@lvs283) ❤ these quotes and affirmations from @fleurdelisspeaks. This one gave me my Monday morning boost! I wish writing jump started my soul, but it doesn't so I quit trying to force it 🤷🏾‍♀️. Running, however, energizes and centers me. I'm trying to switch back to AM runs instead of PM runs for that very reason. I still envy people who wake and write, but I'm no longer judging myself for not being in that club. What jump starts yall's soul?!

  • He told me my name was ghetto. He told me to never sit in the front anymore. He looked at me like I was crazy when I said I didn’t drink. He almost pulled me on stage so he could really go in. He put me on blast for joking after he already made the joke! But he was so genuine in person && I definitely had the time of my life. Thanks for being a real one tonight and making my laugh until my cheeks hurt and I felt self conscious for going off on that while woman for pointing out the donut on that man jacket. You definitely are AMAZING! Continue to change lives! And I can’t wait for you to come speak to my babies. Continue to be great!!!! @tony_rock P.S. imma keep sitting in the front with my sophiscratchet self 🙃 #wellreadblackgirl
