Genre: African American Literature

What great timing! I started the genre challenge. Next thing ya know I came upon a great blog post linking us up to some great African American Authors. I need to grab a piece of paper to write down the ones I want to add to my to-be-read list! Boy I tell ya what...I have a feeling that my TBR list is going to be huge during this challenge. Let's see if I can get to them!

I mean the site is even titled: White Readers Meet Black Authors. With a title that bold, how can you not be kicked in the pants to see what all the hype is about. Whether it is DuBois or something more contemporary. African American Literature is extremely rich and gratifying.

This find is also credited to giving me the idea to review a genre as the challenge progresses. If you would like to host a genre review...these could even suggest good books (please no commercial advertising or promotion). We are here to love books, not to make a buck! Links in comments are fine by me, but not for the actual review. KWIM?

Happy Reading!
