#10books10decades πŸ“š My Picks
β €
I am participating in another @Reggiereads challenge! With this I aim to read the classics from ten decades with the added personal challenge of reading only diverse books. @zora canon provided some much needed inspiration! Curating this list was a struggle with my book buying ban as I own few classics and even fewer books by POC on my bookshelf πŸ˜…! So yesterday I headed to my local used bookstore with six totes of books to trade for β€œnew to me” titles! I was pleasantly surprised by their selection, prices, and trade value! Shop small, y’all!😊
β €
Here’s a breakdown of my TBR:
β €
πŸ“š 1840s- Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass by Frederick Douglass (1845)
β €
πŸ“š 1850s-Our Nig: Sketches from the Life of a Free Black by Harriet E. Wilson (1859)
β €
πŸ“š 1900s-Up from Slavery by Booker T. Washington (1901)
β €
πŸ“š 1930s-Mules and Men by Zora Neale Hurston (1935)
β €
πŸ“š 1940s-Dust Tracks on a Road: An Autobiography by Zora Neale Hurston (1943)
β €
πŸ“š 1970s-Revolutionary Suicide by Huey P. Newton (1973)
β €
πŸ“š 1980s-Assata: An Autobiography by Assata Shakur (1988)
β €
πŸ“š 1990s-Paradise by Toni Morrison (1997)
β €
πŸ“š 2000s/1920s -Every Tongue Got to Confess by Zora Neale Hurston (2002)
β €
πŸ“š 2010s-Salvage the Bones by Jesmyn Ward (2011)
β €
This will be a first time read for all of these! I am excited to get started! Oh, and bonus read (not pictured b/c I traded it),
Kindred by Octavia E. Butler (1979), I read earlier this month! Are you participating in this challenge? Perhaps you have some backlist titles that could use the love or need to rotate your bookshelf!😊
