2012 has been a busy year for me. Workings 1.5 jobs and attending school part-time online is challenging, but something that I know that I can handle. The downside to this– is I am looking at some very interesting books and wishing I could squeeze in some pleasure reading. It’s true that I own more clothes than books. Think of me as the Jessica Parker from Sex in the City…only I have lots of books in my closets. If I had a permanent dwelling place…it would probably look something like the photo below…
I have a recent obsession with the New York Times weekly Book Review. Here are 5 books that I wish I had time to read.
The Loom By Sheila Gillus
Twelve Gates to the City: A Novel By Daniel Black
They Tell Me of a Home: A Novel By Daniel Black
How to Be Black By Baratunde Thurston
Black Cool: One Thousand Streams of Blackness By Rebecca Walker
