#DiversityBingo 2017 TBR




so #diversitybingo2017 is this really cool thing on twitter where you try to fill as many squares as you can to either fill up the entire board or at least a few rows and columns. Since I really want to maximise the amount of diverse books I read in 2017,I’m really excited to participate in this challenge. There are 36 squares, and so far I’ve been able to find 21 books that I either already own or that i can get to the library. But you never know what books will come my way, and this is a really tentative TBR, and any and all recommendations are welcome,preferably adult books that  are a little older! So i’m just going to list the book I have for each category, while also putting the categories for which I have no  book for as of yet.

One thought on “#DiversityBingo 2017 TBR

  1. I am always thinking about books about diversity because I need to purchase them for the library to be used by English teachers and their classes. If you find any particularly good ones, please let me know. Thanks. (I had a busy week-end so I didn’t get much blogging (none) done.)
