POC Reading Chaaaaaaallenge

The Bookslingers like a good challenge (such as "I challenge you to eat all the pie!") and the POC Reading Challenge seems like fantastic way to show publishers and those in the book industry that we as readers are more than happy to read books featuring POC characters and written by POC authors (Disapproving glare in Bloomsbury's general direction).

We have signed up for Level 5 for maximum reading. However, we have a secret goal of merging this with with the 2010 100+ Reading Challenge and reading 100 YA and JUV books by POC in this year. Overachievers? We deny nothing.

So to keep track of all this reading, we're keeping a list of the books here and eventually linking them with our reviews on Bookslingers.

Happy Reading!
