#Diverseathon TBR

I know none of us like to admit to it, but the reality is that we are all ignorant. We all know our own lives and our own stories, and of course the stories of our friends and family too, but how many of us can say their friends and family can accurately represent the lives and experiences of every race out there, or gender, or class, or anything else for that matter? None of us. That’s why it’s important to look for those stories, seek out those stories and learn. 

The Diverseathon runs from today (Monday, 12th September) until next week (Monday, 19th September) and encourages readers to read more diversely, whether that be a novel by a person of colour, or a coming out memoir.

Here are some of the books I have that I’m going to choose from this week:

  • The Help, Katherine Stocket
  • The Kite Runner, Khaled Hosseini
  • Memoirs of a Geisha, Arthur Golden
  • The Color Purple, Alice Walker
  • The Life of Pi, Yann Martel
