Ali, over at the blog Diversity Rocks! is organizing a challenge to help us diversify our reading this year. I am committed to reading at least 12 books by authors of diverse culture/ethnicity/nationalities, preferably authors new to me. She's letting us define "diversity" however that is meaningful to us. I am looking forward to digging in to these books on my GoodReads "to read" list:
Ali is compiling lists of recommended books, including historical fiction, memoirs, short stories, YA, children's, and many other genres. Check out her blog and see if you can join this challenge. Even if you only add a few diverse titles to what you usually read it will be a rich and satisfying experience!
Terry over at Scrub a Dub Tub is doing a Mr. Linky round up of reading/literacy/blogging plans for the new year. Go check it out and add to it if you can!
