Starting 2018 Strong: #ReadingBlackout, #ReadSoulLit, and Drinks in the Library

If you're into challenges and reading projects, these two complement each other beautifully. Didi from BrownGirlReading hosts #ReadSoulLit every February in honor of Black History Month, and ArtBooksLive Denise D. Cooper is doing #ReadingBlackout by exclusively reading African-American authors in 2018.

Like Didi said, "Don't say it's hard."

Learn more at Didi's blog or Instagram and Denise's channel.

I'm planning to exclusively read African-American authors from January to March (thanks for that idea, Didi!), and you should watch for a Black History Month collab with Didi coming to WreckingBallDesign soon.

I'll be back with a sneak peak of my TBR for this Saturday's live stream.

OH RIGHT, I should tell you about the livestream. Join me for an ongoing streaming series called Drinks in the Library. I have a page for it linked at the top of the blog with a public Google Calendar to see the upcoming dates.
